Dear friends of Swiss Hernia Days,
2020 is the year of ongoing challenges due to the Corona pandemic. Restrictions such as impossible long-distance traveling, face masks, Corona tests and social distancing will be with us for longer than we all assumed. Since meeting with friends and colleagues with close interaction, lively discussions with experts from all over the world, close and trusted exchange with our sponsors and communication generally are the key factors for the success of every Swiss Hernia Days, we have decided with a heavy heart to cancel the Swiss Hernia Days 2020 due to the Corona pandemic.
The next Swiss Hernia Days will take place at the 9th – 10th September 2021 in Basel, Switzerland. Also, we will organize a Cadaver workshop, which will be held at the 8th of September 2021. Registrations for the Swiss Hernia Days 2020 will be valid for the upcoming Swiss Hernia Days in 2021. The congress secretary will get in contact with you.
We hope to see all of you again during the upcoming 4th Swiss Hernia Days in 2021.
Warm regards from Switzerland and the best wishes,
Prof. Dr. med. Philipp Kirchhoff, PD Dr. med. Henry Hoffmann
