    Hi everyone

    Now that we are more or less slowly opening to regular work hours, HerniaTalk **LIVE** Q&A will be moving to Tuesdays.

    This week, we will be having a joint session with the Pelvic Guru, focusing on chronic pelvic pain and how it can be cause by inguinal hernias, how to tell, and so on.

    I will provide more details shortly.

    I don’t know how many of you were able to join me live, but that was an amazing two hours of insightful questions.

    We discussed all types of hernias, their repairs, indications for pregnancy, online resources, exercise and PT protocols, etc.

    You can watch it all here: on my Facebook Homepage (@Dr.Towfigh)

    We will be live soon, at 4:30 pm tonight, Pacific, on my Facebook homepage (Dr.Towfigh) and also on the Pelvic Guru homepage. If you miss it, I will send a link to the archived page.

    This expert webinar about hernias will be LIVE in the #GPHAM membership Facebook group (and membership site) AND the public Pelvic Guru Facebook page AND Dr. Towfigh’s Facebook page! (Recordings too).
    I have the honor of interviewing the world renowned hernia specialist and surgeon, Dr. Shirin Towfigh, “Queen of Hernias, Fascia-nista, and Hernia Whisperer.” 🎉🎉🎉Over the years, she’s also been a wonderful resource for information and help. .
    Some of the questions/topics:
    🔥 Hernia basics and anatomy – What is it? What types and are some hidden?
    🔥 Can all people get them? Can they happen in #pregnancy?If someone had one as a baby/child, are they more likely to have more issues as an adult?
    🔥 How accurate is imaging for them?
    What is the best imaging?
    Who should read the imaging?
    🔥 For health & fitness professionals:
    * What signs should we be looking for to suspect a hernia * How would this differ in people with female anatomy vs male?
    * Are there quick screening tests we can do as physical therapists?
    * If there is a #herniasurgery always recommended or are there conservative things you recommend health professionals do to help with symptoms?
    * Hernias related to abdominal or pelvic pain – are there types of pain presentations or genital issues related to #hernias – suprapubic discomfort, testicles drawing up, abdominal pain specific to eating, etc?
    🔥 Mesh.
    * When is mesh needed?
    * Is all mesh bad
    * I know you see a lot of complications with #mesh. Is there a way to avoid this – based on surgeon skill or some people can just have this happen?
    * What is mesh-less surgery and is it effective or only for certain types of hernias?
    🔥 What is a #sportshernia & how is it treated differently than other hernias?
    So, drop in and join us tomorrow, Tuesday, June 2! 🎉🔥❤️.
