Incision Hernia Repair

Incisional hernia repair is a surgical procedure performed to correct an incisional hernia.

VATS-Video Assisted Thorascopic Surgery

Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) is a type of thoracic surgery performed using a small video camera that is introduced into the patient's chest via a scope. The surgeon is able to view the instruments that are being used along with the anatomy on which the surgeon is operating. The camera and instruments are inserted through separate holes in the chest wall also known as "ports". These small ports are advantageous because the chance for infection and wound dehiscence are drastically reduced. This allows for a faster recovery by the patient and a greater chance for the wound to heal.


Ventral Hernia Repair

 

Ventral hernias come by different names and appear for different reasons, but they can be called umbilical hernias which are usually around the belly button.
