Hernia Surgery | Minimally Invasive Hernia Surgery
Each year, while an estimated 5 million Americans develop hernias, only 700,000 have them surgically repaired. Most physicians believe people avoid treating their hernias because they fear painful surgery.
Today, there is much less reason to fear. Hernia surgery is usually performed on an outpatient basis and patients are able to return to most normal activities in a matter of a few days. At Advanced Surgery of Idaho, we have embraced the concept of minimally invasive surgery for hernia repairs.
Laparoscopic groin hernia repairs allow patients to have much less pain than traditional open surgery. Laparoscopic incisional hernia repairs offer far smaller incisions and decreased risks of the hernia coming back.
Not all patients or hernias are candidates for laparoscopic repair. Consultation with one of our experienced hernia surgeons is necessary to decide on the right choice for you.
