Free patient health talk: Hernia Q & A

If you're looking for more information on hernias, join us for a free patient health talk hosted by Mr David Smith, Consultant General Surgeon, on Thursday 24th October 2019 at The Beaumont Hospital.

What is a hernia?

A hernia occurs when an internal part of the body protrudes through a weakness in the muscle or surrounding tissue wall. This can be caused by a number of factors, such as age, chronic coughing, lifting heavy weights and constipation.

What it is the event about?

The event will focus on the causes of hernias, how they can be prevented and the surgical and non-surgical treatments available. If you would like to understand more about hernias for yourself or somebody close to you, this is a great opportunity to speak directly to one of our experienced consultants, ask questions and receive helpful advice.

Reasons to attend:

  • Get the advice you need directly from one of our consultants
