Confusion Over Hernia Diagnosis can be Resolved by Dr. Towfigh
The exceptional effort of Dr. Shirin Towfigh and her team at the Beverly Hills Hernia Center demystifies abdominal hernia and its symptoms.
LOS ANGELES, March 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Whether you are a man, woman or child, you are at risk of suffering a hernia. Hernia symptoms can vary from person to person, making diagnosis difficult, and the examination findings may be non-diagnostic, especially among those that are obese, among women, and among those with very small hidden hernias. This is why the work and research of Dr. Shirin Towfigh is invaluable to her field and helps anyone who seeks a hernia doctor, surgeon, or related medical professional.
As the chief hernia and laparoscopic surgery specialist at the Beverly Hills Hernia Center, Dr. Towfigh provides top-quality care that is tailored to the needs of each patient. More than any other specialist, she understands the various symptoms and presentations of hernias. Moreover, Dr. Towfigh is committed to educating both the public and medical professionals on the topic, as evidenced by her years of award-winning teaching. Most recently, she has created an online hernia discussion forum (www.herniatalk.com) as a resource for accurate hernia information, targeted at patients and their family members worldwide.
Dr. Towfigh’s goal is to prevent hernia-related complications – and eventually, to be able to prevent hernias before surgery becomes necessary. Simply put, a hernia occurs when an organ or fatty tissue squeezes through a weak spot in the surrounding muscle or connective tissue, known as fascia. Some of the most common types of hernias occur near the inner or outer groin, the belly button or the upper stomach. Though causes and triggers can vary, a few of the most common are as follows:
-- Constipation, with straining -- Chronic cough -- Obesity -- A surgical incision -- Nicotine use
Because a hernia can occur in so many different ways – and for various reasons, the diagnosis of hernia can lead to a great deal of confusion. Fortunately, Dr. Towfigh is always happy to provide her patients with in-depth, yet easy-to-understand information regarding hernias. Also, her consultations are filled with information that can help you understand the disease, its presentation, possible cures, and expected outcomes.
