The physicians and staff of Carolinas HealthCare System (CHS) are nationally and internationally recognized experts in innovative hernia surgery. Our physicians have trained more than 2,000 surgeons from more than 35 states and nine countries in the methods to approach and perform simple and extremely complex hernia procedures.
Minimally invasive surgery, commonly known as laparoscopic surgery is one of a variety of proven techniques used to repair hernias. During this type of surgery, two to four small incisions are made in the abdomen so that instruments and a camera can be inserted.
Using this method can:
- Lessen blood loss
- Minimize post-operative discomfort
- Assist with speedy recoveries
Physicians from all over the Southeast refer their patients to our Hernia Center for the most advanced care. We have four fellowship-trained minimally invasive surgeons with a special interest in hernia repair and biomaterials (natural or man-made materials used when repairing the hernia), as well as a dedicated plastic surgeon with 20 years of experience in abdominal wall reconstruction.
