Thanksgiving Holiday Office Closures

From our TPMG family to yours, we wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving.  May your day be filled with special, shared memories, new traditions created and reflections of what you are truly thankful for.

Today, November 25, most TPMG offices will be closing early, or closed.  Thanksgiving day, all TPMG offices will be closed in order for our “family” to enjoy time with their family and friends.  Friday, November 27, some TPMG offices will open at regular hours; however, there will be offices remaining closed until Monday.

Please plan on the above closures and ensure you are not in need of refills during this time to avoid any delays in your office fulfilling your request.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.  TPMG is thankful for our patients, and our physicians and staff who provide superior healthcare services throughout the years.

Bedfordview Edenvale News (Africa)/Edenvale Hospital Aims For New Procedures

Dr. Steven Hopson, from the USA (TPMG General Surgery and Hernia Center), was part of the team that operated on a patient during the hernia workshop hosted at Edenvale Hospital last week.

The Edenvale General Hospital held a hernia workshop at the hospital last week.

The workshop was attended by American guest Dr. Steven Hopson.

Dr. Jann Kruger, the Head of Surgery at the Edenvale Hospital, said the hospital hopes to build a centre which is dedicated to hernia procedures.

“The wish is for Edenvale to have a centre that specialises in all types of hernia procedures, and it is important that the public knows of this development. These kinds of procedures are often offered at private hospitals and this is the first public hospital I know of in the Gauteng region that offers this procedure,” said Dr. Kruger.

A hernia occurs when there is a weakness or hole in the muscular wall that usually keeps abdominal organs in place.

Day two of the workshop focused on laprascopic inguinal hernia repair.

Dr. Kruger said the Edenvale Hospital will dedicate two days per week to hernia operations.
