Hernia Seminar at Atrium Medical Center

Premier Pulse     June 2018

More than 1 million hernia repairs are performed in the United States each year, according to the Food and Drug Administration, with inguinal hernia repair accounting for about 80 percent of the total. Premier Health surgeons treat all kinds of hernias — from the simple to the complex — in men and women at all of our hospitals.

For those with hernias or suspected hernias, our surgeons offer evaluations and provide a full range of surgical options, including minimally invasive surgery with the da Vinci Xi® Surgical System. The benefits of a minimally invasive approach include a very small scar, minimal pain, and a quicker return to normal activities. Most patients return to work and their lives quickly after hernia surgery.

Premier Health surgeons will share their capabilities with physicians and the public this summer at a free seminar to be held on Wednesday, July 25, at Atrium Medical Center from 5:30 to 7:30 pm.

Seating is limited, so reservations are required. To register, call CareFinders at (866) 608-FIND (3463) or visit premierhealth.com/HerniaEvent
