2nd Annual Global Symposium on Robotic-Assisted and Minimally Invasive Hernia Repair

September 16-17, 2016
New York Marriott Marquis, 7th Floor
New York, NY

Course Overview

This course is designed to engage those physicians who are passionate about repairing hernias in an attempt to align robotic experts with open and laparoscopic experts for optimal patient outcomes after hernia repair. By bringing together both hernia experts and robotic experts, this unique conference will highlight and discuss the emerging robotic hernia techniques as well as the corresponding current laparoscopic and open approaches for each hernia disease. Focus will be placed not only on surgical technique, but also on the importance of patient selection, postoperative care, complication management, and outcome tracking.

The International Hernia Collaboration (IHC) is a private social media group of over 2000 members whose dedication, enthusiasm, and focus on improving hernia repair outcomes led to the creation of this conference.
