Oswego Health Offers FREE Hernia Screening Clinic to Community

Posted on September 12, 2023

Oswego Health

(Oswego, NY – September 11, 2023) Preventative health screenings help people understand their risk for developing chronic conditions before symptoms are present, while they can still take action. An estimated 1.6 million groin hernias are diagnosed and 500,000 are surgically repaired annually in the U.S., according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Some 27 percent of men and 3 percent of women are expected to have a groin hernia — the most common type — during their lifetimes.

In many cases, hernias have no symptoms. That is why it is vital to keep up to date with your routine physical or medical exams.

Oswego Health is offering a free hernia screening clinic on Tuesday, October 17th at the Center for Surgical Services from 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. Participants will meet with an Oswego Health physician to receive the screening exam, diagnosis, and treatment plan recommendations.

For more information about the screening clinic and to register visit www.oswegohealth.org/screening or call 315-342-6771.
