Northwest Health to Present June HealthyU Seminar  Hernia: The Common, Treatable Condition No One Talks About

Event Information

4:44pm - 4:44pm

Do you have a nagging ache in your belly or groin that you think may be a hernia? Or, have you been diagnosed with a hernia and putting off treatment?  

If so, don’t ignore it, nor continue to delay treatment, advises Northwest Medical Group General Surgeon Taylor Coleman, MD. According to Dr. Coleman, while hernias may be causing only slight discomfort now, hernias do not go away on their own and need a medical evaluation to determine the type and severity as well as to give a person a timeline for repair – if needed. 

To learn what hernias are, their causes, symptoms, and most importantly, the treatment options available and when to seek them, join Dr. Coleman at Northwest Health’s next HealthyU wellness seminar. The free event entitled Hernia: The Common, Treatable Condition No One Talks About will be held from 6 to 7 p.m., on Tuesday, June 18, 2024 in the Community Room at Northwest Health – Porter located 85 East U.S. Highway 6 in Valparaiso.

During his presentation, Dr. Coleman will explain the anatomy behind hernia protrusions, their potential risk factors, and the latest advancements in surgery for hernia repair. He will lead a question and answer session following his talk. 

HealthyU is a wellness series presented by Northwest Health to provide the community with relevant health and wellness topics. The free monthly seminars are geared to answer you and your families’ questions and provide simple steps to improve your quality of life and help you stay healthy.
