  • 36th International Congress of the European Hernia Society

    The title of the meeting is "Seeking Consensus". The challenge is to create a congress where the audience is given a greater say, where dogma is challenged and debated, fostering greater strength within the European Hernia Society. Dialogue will be encouraged through imaginative formats - plenary sessions, oral papers, poster sessions, keynote lectures, video sessions, and "meet the expert" sessions.

    We will foster interaction in a number of innovative ways, making use of modern technology, allowing audience participation throughout. We believe that at the end of the meeting, we will have gathered enough information to have a clear snapshot of hernia surgery practice across Europe, to produce a "consensus document".

  • 1st World Conference on Abdominal Wall Hernia Surgery

    Dear Friends, Collegues,

    It is with pride, pleasure and not little apprehension that I announce the 1st World Conference on Abdominal Wall Hernia Surgery that will be held in Milano at the MIC Plus Congress Centre from the 25th to the 29th of April 2015.
    This unique event will see the participation of the three-year joint congress of the European Hernia Society and the American Hernia Society and the annual congresses of the Asia-Pacific Hernia Society, the Australasian Hernia Society and the Afro Middle East Hernia Society.
    The peculiarity and specificity of this event is not only the fact that all the major expersts as well as all the different experiences of the five continents will be gathered under the same assizes, but also the fact that throughout the year 2015 there isn't going to be any other international congress of these societies

  • 38th International Congress European Hernia Society

    ROTTERDAM, the Netherlands will be the host-city of the 38th International Congress of the European Hernia Society (EHS), which will be held from 5th – 8th June 2016 in the World Trade Centre in downtown Rotterdam.

    Abdominal wall surgery is more and more emerging as a separate specialisme within the large field of surgery however still touching all well-established surgical specialities like gastro-intestinal, oncologic, vascular, pediatric and trauma surgery. Interest in the abdominal wall re-unites many colleagues from different surgical disciplines around that important human structure that gives way to, prevents the way to or itself needs surgery.
