Hernia Symptoms You Shouldn’t Ignore: Free Lecture & Screening

About This Event

  • Event Type:Lectures & Special Events

Do you experience any of these symptoms?

  • Disturbing swelling in your groin?
  • Pain in your groin when you cough, bend over or lift something heavy?
  • Weakness, pressure or a feeling of heaviness in your groin?

If so, you might have a hernia. It happens when a part of the small intestine or fat pushes through a weak area of your lower abdominal wall. Left untreated, a hernia can lead to serious and potentially life-threatening health problems, so you shouldn’t ignore these symptoms.

Come hear general surgeon Dr. Kyle Marthaller describe symptoms of a hernia, its potential complications, and when to visit a doctor. Then learn about the latest treatment options, including minimally invasive robotic-assisted surgery.

8 to 8:30 p.m.
After the lecture, attendees can get a free private, hernia screening (first-come, first-served).

6 to 7 p.m.
Arrive early to see our state-of-the-art da Vinci Xi surgical robot.
