HOW DO I KNOW IF I HAVE AN VENTRAL HERNIA?
MINIMALLY INVASIVE (LAPAROSCOPIC /ROBOTIC) VENTRAL HERNIA REPAIR?

CANDIDATE FOR LAPAROSCOPIC VENTRAL HERNIA REPAIR?
Only after a thorough examination can your surgeon determine whether a laparoscopic ventral hernia repair is right for you. The procedure may not be best for some patients who have had extensive previous abdominal surgery, hernias found in unusual or difficult to approach locations, or underlying medical conditions. Be sure to consult your physician about your specific case.
