Hernia Surgical Mesh Implants

Dr. Michael Gonzalez Ramos, General Surgeon with Baptist Health South Florida, affirms the risks of robotic surgery are the same as with open or traditional surgery: infection, bleeding, hematoma or any recurrence.

Mesh is a synthetic material used for reinforcing the repair. There are other tapes of mesh, which are biological and they’re made from either porcine or from human tissues, the doctor describes.

The specialist says mesh doesn’t reduce the patient’s mobility, but it reduces the risk of hernia coming back.
