What is Robotic-Assisted Surgery?

Why Robotics Is Ideal For Hernias

 Simply put, the ability to perform a complete surgery robotically through several small incisions dramatically improves patient recovery time, reduces infections, and improves overall outcomes compared to traditional open procedures. There is less pain, less blood loss, and less scarring among other benefits.  This is why the Idaho Hernia Center has made a concerted effort to master robotic surgeries, attain prestigious industry certifications and become the industry leader for hernia repair in the Mountain West.

What Our Patients Say...

  • Dr. Jorge is wonderful and I'm so grateful to have found him! I was very nervous about having a surgery in a smaller town since I have a couple of connective tissue diseases that complicate things. Dr. Jorge was not only familiar with my diseases, but he had experience operating on others in the same situation as me, and he's taken all the precautions to make sure I have a good outcome. He's very personable but direct, which I appreciate. I trust him wholly as my surgeon.  Jacqueline Allen

  • My regular Doctor asked which Surgeon I would prefer to look at my condition and I chose Dr. McRoberts. I have always heard good things and my prior experience with him and his staff has always been great. I was quickly greeted and promptly put in an exam room. Shortly after that Dr. McRoberts meet with me and the best course of action was agreed upon. I was one again pleased with my experience and am scheduled for surgery. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing his services. Cyndie Meline
