Diagnosis & Treatment

Diagnosis for Hernia Surgery

At the Digestive Disease Institute at Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi, our teams of specialists are highly trained in the diagnosis and treatment of hernias as well as complications from previous surgeries.

After being referred, a patient will typically have an initial consultation with a surgeon. As needed, patients may undergo CT examination and further discussion of diagnosis, options, expectations, and recovery.

Treatment with Hernia Surgery

Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi’s comprehensive Hernia Surgery Program offers the following interventions for hernia repair:

  • Laparoscopic surgical hernia repair: A minimally invasive surgery that uses a few tiny incisions (one to two centimeters long) and special instruments attached to the end of a thin flexible tube.
  • Open surgical hernia repair: A traditional open surgical technique that uses one long incision (three to six inches long) to access the hernia. Though more invasive, this approach may be the best option for some patients.
  • Robotic hernia repairs: A minimally invasive approach that uses robotic technologies to control instruments. This technology allows for greater dexterity and precision.
  • Complex abdominal wall reconstruction: This surgery often requires repairing damage and defects acquired from previously failed surgeries. This type of surgery can be performed using open, laparoscopic, or robotic techniques.
