About this book


This book provides comprehensive advice and recommendations to surgeons practicing the laparoscopic repair of incisional hernias. It opens with a brief history and evolution of the technology surrounding the repair of incisional and ventral hernias laparoscopically and includes the introduction of robotic technology, which is constantly undergoing further refinement as new devices are introduced. The text discusses areas of controversy, as well as the limits and benefits of using this technology in the laparoscopic approach. Written by the current thought leaders of minimally invasive techniques, this helpful resource provides current opinions and methods in incisional and ventral hernia repair. Laparoscopic And Robotic Incisional Hernia Repair: Current Considerations provides a valuable resource for both seasoned laparoscopic surgeons interested in the technical aspects of incisional and ventral hernia repair.
