Robotic Assisted Single Incision Laparoscopic Total Extraperitoneal Bilateral Inguinal Hernia Repair

Luca Giordano, MD FACS. Aria Health, Philadelphia, PA, USA


laparoscopic total extraperitoneal ingunal hernia repair are routinely performed.

Robotic assistance to single incision laparoscopic operations, with instrument crossing and arm control reassignment, can facilitate the technical performance of the procedure.

This video demonstrate the technical feasibility of a robotic assisted total extraperitoneal bilateral inguinal hernia repair, highlighting the lack of limitation, normally experienced in standard laparoscopic single incision procedures, due to the diminished instuments range of motion.
