Hernia Surgery

A hernia occurs when an organ or tissue protrudes through weak spots in the muscle walls, resulting in a bulge. Without treatment, patients are at risk of developing this life-threatening condition. If you are diagnosed with a hernia, Dr. Pozzessere’s hernia surgery options can help with:

  • Restore the weakened area of your abdominal muscles
  • Improve your ability to eat the food you like
  • Lessen your need for medications to resolve your symptoms


Robotic Surgery

Robotic surgery allows a specially trained robotic surgeon to improve on the minimally invasive benefits of laparoscopic surgery by enhancing precision, flexibility, and access to difficult locations in the body. Contrary to the common misconception, the robot is completely controlled by the surgeon.
