CHI Memorial Hernia Screening

Wednesday, January 16, 2019
4:30 - 6:30 p.m.
CHI Memorial Hospital Community Rooms

Anyone can develop a hernia which occurs when an organ pushes through, or sticks out, of a tear or opening in the muscle or tissue that holds it in place. Hernias are commonly found in the abdomen and groin, and will not heal without effective treatment. We invite you to join us from 4:30 - 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, January 16, 2019 CHI Memorial Hospital Chattanooga Community Rooms (entrance B) to learn more about this common condition.

Daniel Heithold, MD, FACS, J. Andrew Lovette, MD, FACS, Christina R. Parkhurst, MD, FACS and Walter B. Rose, MD, FACS, of CHI Memorial Surgical Associates will perform screenings for hernias of the groin and abdomen. Hiatal hernia screening will not be available.

Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a hands-on demonstration of the da Vinci Surgical System, the same system surgeons use at CHI Memorial.

CHI Memorial physicians and clinicians discuss a variety of health topics.
