Hernias are a frequently occurring condition in both men and women. They don’t go away on their own and often require surgery to relieve symptoms and prevent life-threatening conditions. Many hernia repairs are now being performed using robotic surgery, which provides better outcomes, shorter recovery times, less infection and less need for pain medications.
- 1 in 4 men will develop an inguinal hernia in his lifetime, according to the National Institutes of Health.
- Women sometimes need to be treated for hernias following childbirth.
- According to the Americas Hernia Society Quality Collaborative, the length of stay for robotic ventral hernia repairs averages 2.1 days vs. 5.1 days for open surgical cases. Many robotic hernia repairs are performed with same-day surgeries.
- An Intuitive Surgical study reported that 86 percent of patients were not using any pain medication within one to two weeks of surgery.
