Minimally Invasive Hernia Repair

A hernia happens when part of an internal organ or tissue bulges through a weak area in the belly wall or groin. Hernias are common and can affect men, women and children. A combination of muscle weakness and straining, such as heavy lifting, may cause hernias. Some people are born with hernias or with weak abdominal muscles and some people have a family history of hernias.

An untreated hernia can cause pain and may lead to other health problems. Surgery is considered the only way to permanently fix a hernia. Surgeons at South Texas Health System Edinburg perform minimally invasive robotic surgery to correct hernias so patients may experience less pain and a quicker recovery.
