Commenting on the recent article, the surgeon and abdominal hernia specialist explains that, while patients are likely not concerned at the size of the global hernia repair field, methods that improve patient care are behind its growth.

Dr. Towfigh has long incorporated laparoscopic surgery at the Beverly Hills Hernia Center.

By having a hernia repaired using the da Vinci system or laparoscopic instruments, Dr. Towfigh explains that patients can experience fewer complications, less scarring, and less discomfort during recovery.

The results of a report predicting the growth of the global hernia repair market are showing that the field will likely expand by about four percent annually until 2021. According to hernia expert and surgeon Dr. Shirin Towfigh of the Beverly Hills Hernia Center, while her patients are much more concerned about their personal ability to overcome pain, rather than the size of the overall market for procedures, the reason for this increase is of interest to patients as well as doctors. The article notes that this rise is correlated with the rise of hernia repair surgery using laparoscopic instruments, rather than the traditional open surgical method. Dr. Towfigh explains that she has long-employed laparoscopic surgery with her patients at the Beverly Hills Hernia Center, and is considered a leader in the field of these types of minimally invasive procedures. In fact, she explains that she has moved one step beyond traditional laparoscopic surgery by incorporating the state-of-the-art da Vinci Robotic Surgical System into her practice. By having a hernia repaired using the da Vinci system or laparoscopic instruments, Dr. Towfigh explains that patients can experience fewer complications, less scarring, and less discomfort during recovery:

  • Fewer Complications – Dr. Towfigh explains that the ability of the surgeon to maneuver tools safely within the patient is greatly improved with laparoscopic equipment, and even more so with the new da Vinci system. She explains that, with this precision, she is able to successfully repair hernias, and perform more difficult procedures such as mesh removals, all while minimizing the impact on the area around the surgical site.
  • Less Scarring – Dr. Towfigh also explains that the precise, compact technologies allow her to perform all of these surgeries with an incision much smaller than one required for open surgery. She notes that less scarring not only has obvious cosmetic advantages, but it also means that patients tend to have less pain during the recovery. Dr. Towfigh explains that the dual advantages of lessening the impact on neighboring tissues and creating a smaller incision makes these minimally invasive techniques far superior in terms of the amount of the pain and the length of recovery that the patients have to undergo.

At Beverly Hills Hernia Center, Dr. Towfigh diagnoses and fixes many types of hernias in both men and women. She explains that, despite the fact that women are only around 10 percent of hernia patients, she is devoted to making sure that women receive the same level of diagnostic attention and care as men. Those who suspect that they may have a hernia, and those who have already been diagnosed but want superior attention and care, can call the Beverly Hills Hernia Center at 310-693-6096 or visit them online at http://www.BeverlyHillsHerniaCenter.com.
