Orland Park Man Finds Relief After Complex Robotic Hernia Surgery
Midwest Institute of Robotic Surgery at Silver Cross #1 in Chicago area for surgeries performed
(June 14, 2016) — Years ago Orland Park resident John Jawor was diagnosed with a benign tumor on his pancreas. After the growth was surgically removed, scar tissue developed from the vertical incision and the abdominal tissue was weakened. Over time, the weakened abdominal muscle tissue developed a tear that progressively enlarged and became painful. Soon a lump became visible and grew in size larger than a walnut. At this point, Jawor sought the advice of his primary care doctor, who referred him to see general surgeon Dr. Thomas Vasdekas. Dr. Vasdekas determined that the best option to relieve Jawor’s discomfort was with a robotic hernia surgery at the Midwest Institute of Robotic Surgery at Silver Cross Hospital. More robotic surgeries are performed at Silver Cross than any other hospital or surgery center in the Chicago metropolitan area.
