Minimally invasive treatment for hernias

A hernia occurs when part of an internal organ or tissue bulges through a weak spot in the surrounding muscle or connective tissue. If you suffer from a hernia, your doctor may suggest lifestyle changes to ease your symptoms, but the only way to permanently fix a hernia is to surgically repair the holes. Dr. Joseph Garcia, Austin Regional Clinic General Surgeon, talks about treatment options for hernias, including the minimally invasive da Vinci Surgical System in this ARC Healthcare Minute.

ARC General Surgeons treat a wide spectrum of diseases that can occur in almost any organ or body system. Our specialists are dedicated to providing the most up-to-date surgical and treatment options available.
