Hernia Repair at Rockford Ambulatory Surgery Center (RASC)

A hernia can be a literal "bump" in the road of life – it’s when a part of your body, usually the intestine, pokes through a weak spot in your abdominal muscles, creating a noticeable bulge that can be uncomfortable or even painful. At Rockford Ambulatory Surgery Center, we understand the discomfort and inconvenience hernias can cause, which is why we offer streamlined, outpatient hernia repair surgeries in collaboration with your personal physician.

Understanding Hernia Repair and the Procedure


Hernia repair surgery, including herniorrhaphy and hernioplasty, aims to reposition bulging tissue back into the proper place and strengthen the muscle wall to prevent recurrence.


Our surgical approach is typically minimally invasive, utilizing smaller incisions to reduce pain and facilitate a faster recovery.


This method allows for a quicker return to daily activities, with most patients experiencing substantial improvement and minimal postoperative discomfort.


Preparing with Precision


In Familiar Hands


Smooth Recovery Roadmap

Before your hernia repair, you'll have a consultation with your doctor to discuss the details of the procedure and ensure you understand the process. Your doctor will work with us at RASC to set a surgery date. We'll provide you with all the preparation instructions you need, from fasting to medication adjustments. Also, you'll need to arrange for someone to drive you home and stay with you overnight after the procedure.

On the day of your surgery, rest assured that you'll be in familiar hands – your own doctor will perform the surgery, supported by our specialized RASC team. Using the latest surgical equipment in our state-of-the-art facility, your doctor will repair your hernia, often through a technique known as laparoscopy, which uses small incisions and special instruments to minimize discomfort and speed up recovery.

After your procedure, you’ll rest in our recovery area under the watchful eyes of our caring staff before heading home to begin your recovery. We'll give you detailed aftercare instructions, including how to care for your incision and manage any discomfort. Your doctor will schedule follow-up appointments to check on your healing and let you know when you can get back to all the activities you enjoy.
