Cancelled: Abdominal Pain, Gallbladder or Hernia?

Thursday, March 26, 6-7:30 pm

When there is pain or dull ache in the abdominal area it could be stress related or diet, or it could be symptoms of the gallbladder or hernia. There are other symptoms to know before a hernia, gallbladder and gallstones become a critical health risk. Join Dr. Zeling Chau, general surgeon, Baystate General Surgery, for a discussion about the gallbladder and hernia, symptoms, and when surgery is needed as well as his career path from working on Public Health in New York City with Mayor Michael Bloomberg to becoming a surgeon. Handouts, plenty of time for questions and answer and refreshments provided. FREE!
