Dr. Darecchio is a surgeon internationally renowned in the treatment of abdominal wall defects.
Championing the use of minimally-invasive methods, he has pioneered the systematic use of robotic surgery to treat diastasis recti.

The abdominal wall procedures performed by Dr. Darecchio are known for their superb aesthetic and functional results.
The emphasis on a natural, lean and feminine lines is a mainstay of Dr. Darecchio’s work, with a comprehensive approach to the abdomen to resolve all issues affecting the patient.

Diastasis recti is a condition which leads to the progressive separation of the rectus abdominis muscles. Outwardly, diastasis manifests as an increase in belly size disproportionate to the body’s true weight and proportions.

Diastasis recti leads to the development of an abnormally large belly even if the patient is not overweight and has no other cosmetic issues. In such a scenario, a realignment of the muscles is sufficient to restore the patient’s former silhouette. The main procedures available are: abdominoplasty, mini-abdominoplasty, liposculpture, correction of previous surgeries, lipofilling and skin tightening. Abdominoplasty may be indicated in particular cases of former obesity, while other procedures are available to correct previous surgeries, tailored to the individual patient.

One of the main functions of the abdominal wall is containment. Hernias are caused by an organ or tissue bulging through a rupture or weakness in the wall of the abdomen, and the different types include abdominal, umbilical, supraumbilical, subumbilical, epigastric, hypogastric, subxiphoidal, Spigelian, incisional and epigastric hernias associated with diastasis.

Robotic Surgery

Robotic surgery is currently the least invasive surgical procedure available to treat defects of the abdominal wall.
The technique offers a magnified, 3D vision of the operating field, giving the surgeon an increased perception of detail, while special filters show the otherwise invisible anatomical structures in real time. Smaller instruments with superb dexterity allow surgery to be performed in areas inaccessible to human hands and traditional laparoscopic instruments.
