Also referred to as laparoscopic surgery, minimally invasive surgery procedures require very small incisions to achieve the desired results. A laparoscope consists of a very thin tube with a camera located at its tip. This small tube is placed in the incision and used by your hernia surgeon to determine the precise location and the most practical way to approach your hernia repair. At Texas Hernia Specialist, we offer the latest state-of-the-art solutions for hernia surgery. Our minimally invasive surgery options promote the fastest healing times and the best outcomes for our patients.
Why Choose Minimally Invasive Hernia Surgery?
Dr. Rick Ngo is a leading hernia surgeon with extensive experience and qualifications in the hernia repair and treatment field. As part of the Texas Hernia Specialist team, Dr. Ngo recommends minimally invasive procedures for many patients because of the reduced hernia surgery recovery time, lower risk of infection and other complications of traditional hernia surgery. This procedure is also recommended in cases of double inguinal hernias because it allows the repair of both hernias using the same small incisions, which will significantly reduce stress on patients with these conditions.
Not All Patients Qualify for Minimally Invasive Surgeries
Some patients may not be eligible for the minimally invasive treatment options we provide. Patients who are significantly obese, have issues with blood clotting or who have had a previous infection or scarring at the site of the hernia may be better candidates for traditional hernia surgery procedures.
At Texas Hernia Specialist, we offer advanced treatments for hernias. Dr. Ngo has the experience and the caring attitude you need to achieve the best possible results.
