Hernia Seminars and Screening This Fall

Premier Pulse     September 2017

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. At Premier Health, our surgeons treat all kinds of hernias — from the simple to the complex — in men and women at all Premier Health 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 fairly soon after hernia surgery.

Premier Health surgeons will be sharing their capabilities with physicians and the public this fall in a series of free events:
