Hernia awareness seminar set for Aug. 9

DAYTON, OHIO—Wright State Physicians Surgery is offering a hernia awareness seminar on Wednesday, Aug. 9, 5:30 to 6:30 p.m., at Miami Valley Hospital South (2400 Miami Valley Dr., Centerville, Ohio 45459) in conference room 1315 next to Valley Café. The session is free and open to the public.

Three Wright State Physicians surgeons, Joon Shim, M.D., M.P.H.; Mbaga Walusimbi, M.D., M.S.; and Randy Woods, M.D., will speak at the seminar. They will discuss hernias and hernia treatment.

“Millions of people suffer from hernias annually in the United States,” Shim said. “Symptoms include nausea, groin pain and a bulge in the lower abdomen. Hernias occur when organs or fatty tissue push through a weak spot in the abdominal wall.”

To register for the session, contact Kayla Mieczkowski at kayla.mieczkowski@wspi.org or (937) 208-5439.
