NEW!! Asia-Pacific Hernia Society

Posted by admin On maggio - 17 - 2011

The Asia Pacific Hernia Society (APHS) with more than 1000 members from 19 Asia-Pacific countries is excited to join the European (EHS), American (AHS), Australasian and African (AMEHS) Hernia Societies in organising the 1st World Conference on Abdominal Wall Hernia Surgery, to be held in Milan, 25 – 29 April 2015.
This will be the first time surgeons and investigators with interest in abdominal wall hernia from all continents to be together at the same place to share scientific knowledge and clinical experiences in all aspects of hernia.  The advancement of surgical techniques, the existing and new biomaterials for hernia repair will be examined  in light of the diversity of global population, national health policies and socioeconomic reality.

sathientWe are thankful to Prof. Giampiero Campanelli and all the members of the Organising Committee for the great effort in making this World Conference possible.

As the President of the Asia-Pacific Hernia Society, I look forward to this historical Hernia event where participants from all over the world will contribute for the advancement of hernia surgery and jointly produce the best outcomes for our patients.
