Dr. Diaz and the other surgeons of North Orlando Surgical Group repair the majority of hernia laparoscopically. Laparoscopic surgery, also called ”minimally invasive surgery” (MIS)”, bandaid surgery”, ”keyhole surgery” is a modern surgical technique in which operations in the abdomen are performed through small incisions (usually 0.5–1.5 cm) as compared to larger incisions needed in traditional surgical procedures.
This surgical technique facilitates a faster recovery and return to the activities of daily living. In many instances, patients undergoing laparoscopic surgery can return to work within a few days to one week. Many of these surgical procedures can be performed at an outpatient surgery center at a significantly lower cost.
