TriHealth On Call: Hernia Prehabilitation with Dr. Bryan Ellis
For certain procedures, such as surgical hernia repair, prehabilitation can be just as important as rehabilitation for regaining your full quality of life. Prehabilitation can offset or alleviate some of the biggest risk factors for hernia repair such as smoking, obesity and diabetes.
TriHealth’s Comprehensive Hernia Center provides every aspect of hernia prehabilitation under one roof at the TriHealth Fitness & Health Pavilion. In this segment of TriHealth On Call, Bryan Ellis, DO, assistant program director and a surgeon at the Hernia Center, explains how this convenient and comprehensive approach has helped TriHealth out-perform the national average when it comes to readmission and infection rates for surgical hernia repair.
The segment also features patient Daniel Allen who is back to enjoying his favorite activities such as skiing after successful hernia prehabilitation and surgical repair.
