Minimially Invasive RepairAlso 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 & Surgical Specialists, 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 & Surgical Specialists 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.

Moreover, a minimally invasive hernia procedure only takes around an hour, and you might be able to return home on the same day.

Since the surgery requires small incisions, it will cause less scarring. There is a reduced possibility of complications, and you can ensure quick recovery by following the post-treatment instructions.

Recovery After Laparoscopic Hernia Repair

After the minimally invasive hernia surgery, you can expect to return to normal activities a week or two later. Your recovery will also depend on the size and location of the hernia, your overall health, and more.

The short recovery period, which lasts weeks instead of months, is among the significant benefits of minimally invasive hernia repair.

Dr. Ngo will provide you with aftercare instructions to ensure you have a proper recovery. He will instruct you to avoid heavy lifting, exercise, and other strenuous activities for at least six weeks. This way, the incisions will heal without delay.

You might experience swelling, soreness, and discomfort in your abdomen and the incision site after the surgery. Our hernia specialist will prescribe pain medications if necessary, and the symptoms usually diminish within a few days to a week.

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. Certain health conditions also make you ineligible for this surgery!
