LEXINGTON, Ky. (January 2, 2009) - Any increase in abdominal pressure can result in a hernia, so pregnant women are especially at risk. In a guest column in Sunday's Herald-Leader, Dr. J. Scott Roth, director of UK HealthCare's Minimally Invasive Surgery Program, tells pregnant women what they need to know about their increased risk for hernias - and when to seek treatment.
The column is part of an ongoing series of health columns by UK HealthCare experts appearing in each Sunday's edition of the Herald-Leader and online at BluegrassMoms.com.
