Lovelace Medical Group surgeons offer a minimally invasive approach to hernia repair, utilizing the da Vinci Xi surgical robot.

Patients can expect less pain, shorter hospitalization and quicker recovery.

A hernia occurs when there is a weakness or hole in the muscle wall, allowing an abdominal bulge of tissue or intestine to protrude through the muscle.

The symptoms of a hernia may include a dull ache, feeling of weakness, heaviness, pressure or a burning sensation in the abdomen. A soft bulge may develop, typically getting worse as the day goes on. The most common types of hernias are groin, belly button and a surgical incision site. The only way to repair a hernia is through surgery.
