Free Hernia Screening

Friday, November 18, 2022, 12:00PM - 3:00PM

Hernias develop in the abdominal, groin and chest area. Symptoms range from a bulge, swelling, sense of feeling full to heartburn, indigestion and difficulty swallowing. The most common types of hernias are inguinal or femoral hernias, which are caused by weakened muscles in the abdominal and groin area. Anyone can develop them; specific risk factors include being male, family history, chronic cough or constipation, weight lifting and pregnancy.

Participating surgeons include Farzad Amiri, M.D., and Yinan Wei, M.D. All are certified by the American Board of Surgeons and specialize in minimally invasive robotic surgery.

Interested participants are advised to call and make a reservation for a screening. While participants wait for their appointments, they will have the opportunity to learn more about hernias, including treatment and prevention.

To make a reservation or for more information, call Marshall Surgery, an outpatient department of Cabell Huntington Hospital, at 304-691-1200.
