The PATCH Institute & Epic Care has partnered with Sutter Alta Bates Summit Medical Center to provide the most advanced hernia care.
The latest advancement in hernia surgery has been the use of robotic surgical systems like the daVinci robot. The wristed instruments, improved image stability, and 3 dimensional image magnification are allowing our surgeons to perform complex hernia surgeries through tiny incisions. Our hernia surgeons have been using daVinci robots for minimally invasive surgeries since 2004. As a result, our patients have less complications, faster recoveries and more durable repairs.
Dr. Rockson Liu is a recognized leader and pioneer in advanced treatment for hernias. He is the only Intuitive Surgical Hernia Epicenter program in California. Even experienced hernia surgeons are coming to his case observations to learn the latest robotic hernia repair techniques. He also conducts monthly courses on complex robotic hernia repair techniques and regularly travels across the country to supervise complex hernia surgery.
There are almost 100,000 ways to fix hernias. You deserve an experienced hernia surgeon who can tailor the operation to your needs regardless of the complexity or type of hernia. At Epic Care we are experts at hernia repairs, especially groin hernia surgery, hiatal hernia surgery, umbilical hernia surgery and incisional hernia surgery.
Have you been told you need an "open" operation through a large incision? We perform even the most complex hernia surgeries through incisions only 5-8mm (1/4"-1/3") long.
These can be some of the most challenging hernias to fix. The first operation is frequently your best opportunity for a durable repair.
Our experts focus on minimally invasive surgery & rapid recovery. By offering robotic-assisted surgeries we have seen our patients use 80% less narcotics (opioids) after surgery.
Please call us for an appointment or ask your doctor to refer you to us.
