Welcome Letter

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,
Dear friends of hernia surgery.

With great pleasure, we are looking forward to the 2nd SWISS HERNIA DAYS at the 20th – 21st  September 2018 in the Congress Center Basel, Switzerland. At the premiere of the Swiss Hernia Days in September 2017 many national and international hernia experts and more than 270 participants followed our invitation to Basel. With the congress motto “hernia surgery 2.0” participants were updated with innovations and current concepts in the field of hernia surgery, and interactive discussions and professional exchange with the national and international hernia experts was possible. Herewith with want to thank all participants, experts and sponsors for supporting the 1st Swiss Hernia Days.

The 2nd Swiss Hernia Days are again deemed to be the ideal Swiss platform for professional exchange between participants and hernia experts. This time, the two core topics will be “challenges and innovations in ventral hernia repair” and the “controversies in guideline-conform therapy of inguinal hernias”. Beside interactive discussion and state-of-the-art lectures, live-surgeries will again be broadcasted from the University Hospital Basel. And finally, of course we will prepare an interesting networking event, which will surprise you.

The national and international value of the 2nd SWISS HERNIA DAYS is emphasized by the patronage of the Swiss Society for Visceral Surgery (SGVC), the Swiss Collaboration for Laparoscopic and Thoracoscopic Surgery (SALTC), the European Hernia Society (EHS) and the German Hernia Society (DHG).

We are inviting you to participate in the 2nd Swiss Hernia Days at the 20th – 21st September 2018 in Basel, Switzerland. Be part of the SWISS HERNIA DAYS!
