Hernia Repair

It is estimated that surgeons perform about approximately 2 million laparotomies (surgical incisions into the abdominal wall) annually in the United States. 10%-25% of these procedures are for repair of hernias. Hernia repair surgery is one of major procedures for Minimally invasive surgery.

The traditional open hernia Open Surgery with sutures produces long-term recurrences at rates of up to 40%. The invention of synthetic mesh has decreased the recurrence rate by about 10%. However implanting the synthetic mesh can be time consuming and may increase the risk of wound infection. This is why the physicians of Advanced Surgical Associates have moved to laparoscopic surgery techniques, first introduced in 1993, as the procedure of choice for hernia repair.

At Advanced Surgical Associates, our surgeons are at the forefront of laparoscopic hernia repair surgery. Our surgeons are not only well skilled and trained but have done the greatest number of laparoscopic hernia procedures in the area. In addition, we are one of the training centers for laparoscopic hernia repair in the Western United States.

Our surgeons perform laparoscopic surgery for inguinal, incision, ventral, and umbilical hernia. Compared with traditional open surgery repair, laparoscopic surgery techniques offer lower complication rates, shorter hospital stays, less pain, and smaller incisions.
