Robotic-assisted Umbilical Hernia Repair

Umbilical hernias usually happen because of a hole or a weak area in the muscles of the abdominal wall and abdominal organs or fluid pushed through the belly button creating a bulge. 

The repair can be done through open, laparoscopic, or laparoscopic robotic-assisted umbilical hernia repair. Using the da Vinci® Surgical System, robotic-assisted surgery for umbilical hernia repairs allows for greater precision and control while minimizing pain and speeding up the recovery process.

da Vinci Robotic-assisted Umbilical Hernia Repair offers many other potential benefits when compared to open surgery, including:

  • Less pain
  • Less blood loss and transfusions
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Faster recovery and return to normal activities
