Minimally Invasive Robotic Surgery for Hernia
Robotic surgery is nothing fancy. It’s just a tool and the robot itself does not do surgery. It’s a tool that the physician guides to perform surgery.
Dr. Michael Gonzalez Ramos, General Surgeon with Baptist Health South Florida, also says minimally surgeries, through small incisions, mean a best recovery for the patient.
Robotic surgery is the first option when a hernia is detected. Open surgery tends to be a lot more painful and has a more risk of infection.
