Participants will screened by Board Certified General Surgeon Dr. Wayne Wolf and Physician Assistant Josh Macken, who are experts in hernia repair and complications caused by hernias. Pre-registration is required: https://conta.cc/2IoswXZ.

Dr. Wolf uses the latest treatment options for repairing hernias including minimally invasive robotic surgery. Screening participants will have an opportunity to enter to win an Amazon Dot. Light refreshments will be served.

“I’ve been doing robotic surgery to repair hernias for three years when CMH purchased its first robot, the da Vinci Si-e. CMH recently added a second surgical robot, the da Vinci X, that will help me offer my patients minimally invasive surgery options with reduced recovery time, minimal scarring and less trauma to the body,” says Dr. Wolf

According to Dr. Wolf, hernias are more common in males, but can affect women, too. It is caused by a strain on the abdominal wall caused by aging, genetic predisposition, heavy lifting, pregnancy, athletic activities, obesity, previous surgery, constipation, and chronic coughing.  Although some people do not experience symptoms, the most common indicators of a hernia can include nausea, pain, a bulge or obvious swelling in the abdominal area, or groin pain.

There are two types of hernias: 1. A ventral hernia is located in the abdomen and may appear at an incision site any time after surgery, and 2. An inguinal hernia occurs in the groin area.

Your physician may suggest lifestyle changes to ease the pain and other symptoms, but surgery is often the only way to truly repair a hernia. Hernia repair can be done using traditional open surgery, laparoscopic (minimally invasive), and robotic surgery.

CMH Surgical Services Clinic is located in the Kerry and Synda Douglas Medical Center, 1155 W. Parkview St., Suite 1F, Bolivar. For more information about the screening, call the clinic at 417-326-8700 and to pre-register for the event, go to https://conta.cc/2IoswXZ.
