A hernia occurs when there is a protrusion of an internal organ through the muscle wall as the result of a weakening around the border.

As the organ pushes through the barrier, an individual may experience anything from mild discomfort to significant pain. The most common types of hernia are groin, sports hernia, and incisional hernia. Surgery is the only way to repair a groin (or inguinal) hernia. Traditionally, surgeons repaired hernias with open surgery, which would require a large incision in the abdomen. However, the team at the Institute for Robotic Surgery at Hudson Regional Hospital uses robotic technology to assist patients in their hernia surgeries using less invasive approaches.
