Hernia Care at Vassar Brothers Medical Center: Why Choose Us?
We are one of the few programs in New York’s Hudson Valley providing care for all hernia types. You receive services from nationally recognized surgeons specializing in hernia repair. We tailor recommendations to your personal preferences, so you feel good about your care experience every step of the way. Highlights of our program include:
Minimally invasive surgery
We often use robotic surgical technologies to repair hernias through small incisions for a quicker recovery. Surgeons use evidence-based methods and consistently achieve outstanding results. This level of performance has earned many Nuvance Health hospitals Center of Excellence accreditation from the Surgical Review Corporation.
Complex hernia repair
Nuvance Health is one of the few programs in the region capable of treating the most severe cases. Some surgeons have additional training in treating large recurring hernias. We regularly help patients who have been suffering for years to achieve lasting relief. Explore complex hernia repair (abdominal wall reconstruction).
Hernia surgery often involves mesh, an implantable net-like material that strengthens abdominal tissue while it heals. Nuvance Health specialists use mesh products that meet our high care standards and have a longstanding reputation for good results. Very few patients experience infections or reactions to the product we use.
