LEWISVILLE, TEXAS – Hernias can be slow to show themselves – a little discomfort and pain – before obvious symptoms like an abnormal protrusion, or bulging out, reveal themselves. Many patients may try to live with a hernia, but surgery may become necessary as hernias do not heal themselves and may continue to grow and become more painful, which can lead to other health problems.
Medical City Lewisville is inviting the public to a free hernia seminar to learn more about treatment options on Saturday, July 28, from 10 a.m. – noon in the second floor community room at 500 West Main Street, Lewisville. Please register online at http://bit.ly/mclrobotics72818 or by calling 855-880-4625.
Attendees will have the opportunity to meet Medical City Lewisville’s experienced surgeons, learn more about different types of hernias, treatment options, and recovery expectations. Medical City Lewisville’s surgical robot will also be available for attendees to “test drive” and hear more about how this innovative technology, a minimally invasive treatment option, can reduce recovery times and pain.
Medical City Lewisville is a member of the Texas Institute for Robotic Surgery, which means surgeons are skilled in using leading edge surgical robots and have access to the world’s leading robotic surgery database.
