Free Hernia Screenings for the Community

08-10-2018

On Thursday, September 6, Southern Regional Medical Center, in partnership with LA Fitness/Morrow, will host a Free Hernia Screening event for the community from 3:00 – 7:00 p.m. The LA Fitness is located at 7057 Mt. Zion Circle, Morrow.

Many people are walking around with a hernia and don’t know that they have one. Individuals, especially anyone who is a runner, weight lifter, does manual labor for a living, or lifts heavy objects, are prone to having a hernia. And if you’re 50 or over your chance of having a hernia increases. Symptoms that are commonly associated with a hernia are nausea, groin pain or a bulge in the abdomen or groin area.

The community event will offer:

  • Free hernia check by a physician
  • “Test drive” the da Vinci Robotic Surgical System
  • 7-day guest pass for LA Fitness
  • Refreshments

Although the event is free, RSVP to the event is appreciated. Anyone interested in attending should call 770-897-SURG (7874). Walk-ins will be welcomed.
