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
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.
