Our Hernia Repair Techniques
Small incisions are made and plastic tubes called ports are placed through. A camera and thin instruments are then introduced through the ports to access the inside of the patient.
In robotic surgery, surgeon makes tiny incisions in body and inserts miniaturized instruments and a camera. Surgeon manipulates those instruments from a nearby computer console.
In this method surgeon uses a synthetic or biologic sheet, called mesh, as either a permanent or temporary support for organs and other tissues during surgery.
Open hernia surgery is performed for large and complex cases, a single long incision is made in the groin. If the hernia is bulging out of the abdominal wall, the bulge is pushed back into place.
A year and a half after my first hernia surgery I needed the other side done. I went again to Dr. Ramin because the first repair went so well. This second one went as smoothly. He is great to work with and very careful. I only needed over the counter painkillers the next morning. Following instructions, I started walking outside the next day and was doing 3 miles by the third day (I’m a runner). After 6 days I was gently jogging and then back to a full pace about ten days after. I would recommend Dr. Ramin to anyone along with the Torrance Hernia Center where the operation was done. A great surgeon and a wonderful facility.
My story starts with being tired of feeling bad and taking pill after pill and never feeling any real relief. I had a hernia that gave me the blues, overweight, acid reflux and lots of other annoying physical ailments due to being overweight. While I greatly appreciate Dr. Rohiipoor’s knowledge as a physician and surgeon, it is his human spirit and compassion that really touched my life. My surgery went well, no issues at all. He came by to see how I was doing every day I was in the hospital and I have to tell you his happy attitude brighten my day. If anything at all was bothering me, he took care of it. My appointments are like visiting with an old friend – he is kind, caring, and a wonderful person. He has good suggestions and I always feel good after seeing him.
