Join us for Hernia Night Live

A live surgical education series for hernia repair

Learn what’s new and hear from leaders in hernia repair during our new live surgical education series. Scheduled the last Tuesday of every month, each virtual session will offer dynamic conversation with thought leaders, technique review and more.  Event registration is no longer required.  To attend this event, come back to this page closer to the event start time and the join link will be available.

Please join Dr. Wolfgang B. Gaertner as he presents how incisional hernia after stoma closure is increasingly common and associated with decreased QoL. He will also share from his perspective how stoma site closures are frequently underestimated and share data on abdominal wall reinforcement after stoma closure is safe and effective in selective cases.
