The Hythe | Vail, CO
Presented by:
Columbia Comprehensive Hernia Center
Next years Hernia Surgery Summit will take place on February 15-17, 2024 in Big Sky, MT. Additional details coming soon!!

Please join us in Vail, Colorado for the 13th Annual Hernia Surgery Summit, a premier event for hernia surgery education. Presented by Columbia Comprehensive Hernia Center and hosted by CineMed, Inc., this meeting always delivers exciting, thought-provoking discussions from the perspective of world-renowned hernia experts.

Surgeons, nurses, and physician assistants choose to attend year after year because they know they are getting access to key opinion leaders sharing case studies, tips and tricks from their own surgical technique, and delivering a comfortable balance of both controversy and consensus in surgical approach. The expanding role of robotics in hernia surgery will be highlighted in this year's agenda. The Morbidity and Mortality session is expected to draw attention again this year as the esteemed faculty once again shares their experiences in dealing with their own surgical complications.

The meeting promises to wrap up with Stump the Experts, in which attendees can share their own case concerns and questions and are even invited to challenge the information presented throughout the meeting.

This meeting is a must attend event. To quote one participant from last year's meeting, "A WHOLE HERNIA conference on practical knowledge!!!! Come on! Doesn't get better than this for a bread-and-butter surgeon!"

Reserve your spot by registering today.

This conference is typically very interactive and family-friendly with ample time to enjoy the slopes. Bring your family and ski gear and leave all your formal attire at home.

About the Event

The reconstruction of abdominal wall defects remains one of the most challenging dilemmas facing surgeons. Congenital, acquired or post traumatic defects all present unique challenges to the reconstructive surgeon. A multitude of surgical techniques and mesh materials is available to improve outcomes in ventral hernia repair. Robotics has become a major component for both routine and complex inguinal and ventral hernia repairs. Even though ventral hernia repair remains one of the most common procedures performed, there is little consensus as to the best surgical technique, prosthetic material of choice, or strategies to repair complex defects.
