FREE Hernia Screening

A hernia occurs when an internal organ or other body part bulges through the wall of muscle or tissue that normally contains it. The most common types of hernias are inguinal and femoral and are due to weakened muscles that may have been present since birth, or are associated with aging or repeated strains on the abdominal and groin areas. While hernias are more common in men, women can also develop them.

Common symptoms are:

  • Weakness, pressure, burning in the abdomen
  • A bulge or lump in the abdomen, pelvis, or groin
  • Pain or discomfort when bending over, coughing, or doing heavy lifting
  • An enlarged belly button

In some cases patients have no symptoms, which is why screening is so important. If a hernia is left untreated, it can cause severe pain and lead to other health problems.

Join General Surgeons James Shepich, M.D., and Dennis Van Dorp, M.D. for a free hernia screening and to learn about this common but overlooked condition. You will also learn about a new minimally-invasive treatment method using robotically-assisted surgery.
