Mercy Health – Clermont Hospital Presents “Innovations in Hernia Treatment” Seminar on January 31

Mercy Health - Cincinnati, which provides advanced, quality, compassionate care in your neighborhood through its care network, announces that Clermont Hospital is hosting “Innovations in Hernia Treatment,” a free seminar from 6-7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, January 31.

The seminar will take place in the Queen City Room A & B (lower level) of the Union Township Civic Center, located at 4350 Aicholtz Road, Cincinnati, Ohio 45245.

A hernia is a condition in which an organ pushes through the muscle or tissues that are meant to hold it in place. Muscle strain or weakness can lead to a hernia and hernias occur most commonly in the abdomen or the groin. Symptoms include swelling and pain in the affected area.

If you or someone you care about has a hernia, there’s a way to stop the pain and physical symptoms permanently with minimally-invasive hernia repair.

Join Mercy Health surgeons Brian Shiff, MD and Mark Poynter, MD for an informative presentation about hernias, their causes, symptoms and a variety of treatment options for this very common condition, including repair via minimally-invasive robotic surgery.

Drs. Shiff and Poynter are part of robotic surgery team that is helping hernia patients in our community recovery fully and quickly with smaller incisions and less pain.

Presentation will be followed by Q&A with the physicians. Light refreshments will be available.

To register for this free event, please call 513-732-8255.
