VIDEO: So You Have a Hernia, What’s Next?

Published: Monday, July 13, 2020

Hernias are a widespread issue, and NGPG general surgeon, Dr. Ronald Lewis is fully equipped to treat this problem. Hernias are a defect in the abdominal wall that can cause organs to protrude, be left untreated, and choke off the organ’s blood supply. It is crucial to get them checked out by a physician.

While the treatment is surgical, our team specializes in minimally invasive surgeries, both with the da Vinci Robot and laparoscopic surgeries performed by the surgeon’s hands. Our focus is on minimally invasive treatments because there is less postoperative pain. Most patients are in and out of the center on the same day, and our patients can return to normal activities sooner. Our center has performed thousands of these surgeries, and our reoccurrence and infection rates are lower than the national average. If you suspect that you have a hernia, visit us in Medical Park 2 at the Hernia Center of Excellence.
