Hospiten Sur offers new pain- reducing treatment for hernias
The Hospiten Sur group has incorporated a new laparoscopic treatment for the operation of inguinal hernias, with which, through small incisions, it is possible to treat gallbladder-related pathologies biliary, hiatus hernia or epigastric hernias.
This minimally invasive intervention guarantees a sig-nificant reduction in post-operative pain and the con-sumption of anti-inflammatory drugs, as well as a faster incorporation into the patient’s normal life.
It can be performed by endoscopic transabdominal route (TAPP), in those patients with urological operations that have created fibrosis in the area to be treated. On the other hand, those patients who present primary, bilateral, reproduced inguinal hernias or require a speedy recovery can be treated preperitoneally (PET), without penetrating the abdominal cavity and reducing the risk of visceral and abdominal in-juries.
According to the specialist of the General and Digestive Surgery Service of Hospiten Sur, Dr. Fernando Estévez de la Rosa, this treatment is performed through small incisions, so it presents less complication in wounds, thus reducing the chances of developing seromas and derived infections of the intervention.
“From Hospiten, we are committed to incorporating the latest advances, both in processes and techniques, in order to improve the health and quality of patients. In this case, this new method represents a considerable improvement in recovery times and pain reduction, ” adds the specialist Estévez de la Rosa.
