SAGES Inguinal Hernia Education Program

James W. Saxton was invited to participate in a video interview during the Hernia Task Force Retreat hosted by the Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons (SAGES) at the Anne Arundel Medical Center in Annapolis, MD.

As the only lawyer in the country interviewed, Mr. Saxton discussed the most common legal issues related to inguinal hernia surgery and provided ways surgeons can reduce their liability exposure through the use of procedure-specific informed consent forms and effective post-adverse event communication.  The filmed interview is part of the SAGES inguinal hernia education program designed to evaluate the fundamental knowledge, decision making and management strategies used in caring for a patient with an inguinal hernia.
