Free Hernia Info Session scheduled for Thursday, September 19 in Bangor

Date: 08/26/2019

If you or someone you know has noticed a new bulge or lump around your belly button or in your groin area, there’s a chance it may be a hernia – a weakness or defect in the wall of the abdomen or diaphragm.

Hernias are common and they’re nothing to be embarrassed about. In fact, it’s estimated that 5 percent of the US population suffers from some form of hernia. At Northern Light Surgery, our experienced surgical team offers the newest techniques for treating all types of hernias, including minimally invasive (laparoscopic) and robotic surgical procedures. This combination of surgical expertise and advanced technology allows patients to achieve the most durable repair with the least discomfort and fastest recovery.

To help community members better understand hernias, Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center is holding a FREE information session on Thursday, September 19 at the Hilton Garden Inn in Bangor. The event will kick off at 5:30 pm and will include light dinner and refreshments and will conclude by 7 pm. Anyone interested in learning more about hernias and how they can be easily treated is welcome to attend. Please RSVP today by calling 973.4699 or RSVP online here.
