Robotic Trained Surgeons to Host Free Seminar on Hernia Repair
Oct 11, 2017 Share

(BENTON HARBOR) – Community members are invited to join certified da Vinci® robotic surgeons, James Clancy, MD, and Michael Webb, MD, for a free educational seminar titled, “Robotic Hernia Repair.” The seminar will take place from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, October 17, in the Conference Center at Lakeland at Meadowbrook, located at 2550 Meadowbrook Road in Benton Harbor.

“Hernias will not go away on their own — surgery is the only way to permanently fix the problem,” said Dr. Webb. “If not treated, a hernia can get larger and lead to serious health complications.”

During the seminar, Drs. Clancy and Webb will discuss the different types of hernias and what causes them, symptoms, as well as the latest treatment options. Guests will have the opportunity to test drive a da Vinci Surgical System or view a demonstration beginning at 5:00 p.m. Preregistration is encouraged; walk-ins are welcome. For more information or to register, call (269) 927-5361 or visit www.lakelandhealth.org/hernia
