Adena to Hold Free Hernia Screening in Circleville, Nov. 18

Have you experienced pain or discomfort while coughing or exercising? With this discomfort, have you felt nauseous, tired or have had a lack of appetite? These symptoms can be common with many health issues, but they can also be symptoms of a hernia; as can groin pain or a bulge under the skin.

However, some patients have no symptoms at all, which is why it is important to talk to a health care provider and have a screening. Adena General Surgeon Dr. Bill Sever, an expert in robot-assisted surgery, will hold a Saturday morning information session, where he will share information about robot-assisted surgery for treatment of hernias.

When:            Saturday, Nov. 18

                        9–11 a.m.

Where:          Adena Health Center – Circleville

                       140 Morris Road

                        Circleville, OH  43113

Following Dr. Sever’s presentation, he will offer free, private screenings for those who are interested. Complimentary coffee and donuts will be served.
