Center for Hernia Repair is a frequent choice for patients coming from remote locations with multiple failed hernia repairs in the past.
These patients often have large complicated hernias with significant disfigurement. These large and complex hernias require a completely unique approach for repair. Abdominal wall reconstruction is the preferred term for those cases that involve more radical of an approach.
In order to facilitate a return to normalcy of the abdominal wall, we emphasize the benefits of reapproximation of the midline by mobilizing the rectus muscles back toward each other. The techniques that are utilized in this setting are called components separation. There are many aspects of component separation including but not limited to anterior division of external oblique, posterior transversus abdominis release (TAR), and posterior rectus release. These procedures can be performed with the DaVinci Robot or with open techniques.
A mesh (significant variation in type) is used under the rectus muscles but inside the muscular sheath. This mesh may be permanent (usually a lightweight polypropylene ) and at times absorbable. Mesh used in these procedures is “hidden” from the abdominal contents and is the safest way to place mesh.
We enjoy changing peoples lives for the better with our vast experience in Abdominal Wall Reconstruction.
Abdominoplasty means to reshape the abdominal wall. While many who suffer from large ventral hernias complain of discomfort or pain, most are also frustrated by the cosmetic disfigurement .
Abdominoplasty involves a transverse incision in the lower pelvis across the pubic bone with extensions under the skin fold to each side. The tightening of muscular laxity, often referred to as diastasis, is performed in addition to hernia repair. Finally the skin is shortened in order to eradicate all laxity and wrinkling and the umbilicus (belly button) is re-implanted to a more natural location.
Dr Yunis offers abdominoplasty for many of his patients that may also require hernia repair.
