Evaluating Potential Risks of Waiting to Repair a Hernia
We have established that having a hernia does not necessarily require surgical repair.
Dr. Lublin is now performing his laparoscopic hernias through a single – less than 1 inch – incision in the belly button. Normally, this surgery is performed through three small incisions. Now, the surgery is able to be performed through a single incision. This results in a much better cosmetic result. Dr. Lublin is the one of the few surgeons performing this technique in all of Los Angeles.
With improved instruments, single incision surgery is becoming more common. Dr. Lublin performs other single incision as well. Specifically, gallbladder and appendectomy removal can now be accomplished through a single incision, as opposed to 4 and 3 incisions, respectively.
