Medical City McKinney surgeon to discuss hernia treatment options

Hernias can be slow to show themselves — a little discomfort and pain — before obvious symptoms like an abnormal protrusion, or bulging area, are visible. Many patients may try to live with a hernia, but surgery typically become necessary because hernias do not heal themselves and continue to grow.

The public is invited to learn more about treatment options for hernia at a FREE Hernia Seminar at Medical City McKinney, 4500 Medical Center Drive, McKinney, on Thursday, February 28 from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. in Classroom 3-4. Register online or call 1-855-296-6265. Lunch will be provided.

David Lambert, MD, a general surgeon on staff at Medical City McKinney, will present information on the different types of hernias, treatment options, including minimally invasive robotic surgery, and recovery expectations. The seminar will address questions for men and women. Attendees will also be able to test-drive Medical City McKinney's newest surgical robot.

"Hernias can lead to other health problems," said Dr. Lambert. "They don't get better or go away on their own. For this reason, surgery to repair the opening in the muscle wall that is painful or becoming larger is the only solution."
