Hernia Screening Program

Hernia Screening Program

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 – that is where it’s most likely for a hernia to show up. Hernias are most common in the stomach, but can also appear in the upper thigh, belly button, and groin areas.

The most common types of hernias are:

  • Epigastric Hernia
  • Incisional Hernia
  • Umbilical (navel) Hernia
  • Inguinal (groin) Hernia
  • Femoral (upper thigh) Hernia

HMC General & Specialty Surgeons offer a monthly free hernia screening clinic on the second Wednesday of each month at 2:30 p.m. To reserve space or ask any questions, please call the office at 413.532.1411. Walk-ins welcome.
