Laparoscopic hernia repair is a form of minimally invasive surgery that uses miniaturized equipment and cameras to treat inguinal, ventral, umbilical and incisional hernias. This method of treatment reduces hernia surgery recovery times and allows most patients to resume their regular activities as soon as they feel comfortable to do so. At Texas Hernia Specialist, we work with you to determine the best approach for your specific medical condition. Dr. Rick Ngo is a leading hernia surgeon with proven experience in the laparoscopic surgical field. This allows us to deliver state-of-the-art solutions for your hernia repair requirements.
Laparoscopic Hernia Repair by Dr. Rick Ngo
Laparoscopy is the medical field dedicated to the use of very small instruments and cameras. This type of minimally invasive surgery also uses very small incisions and the laparoscope, which is a tube that is inserted into the incision. This tube has a camera at the end which is used to guide the surgical instruments and the actions of Dr. Ngo. By opting for laparoscopic hernia repair, discomfort during recovery is reduced and you will achieve the best results possible.
Benefits of Minimally Invasive Surgery
Along with faster recovery times and reduced pain, opting for minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery will reduce your overall risk of infection and complications after your hernia repair procedure. The smaller incisions heal more quickly, which leaves less time for infections and other issues to arise. Smaller incisions also mean less visible scarring, which is especially important for some of the patients we see at Texas Hernia Specialist.
