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.

Please join Dr. J. Scott Roth M.D., FACS​ and Dr. John Fischer, MD, MPH, FACS on November 14, 2023, 6:30 p.m. EDT as they present their thoughts on Abdominal Wall Stewardship & The Mesh Footprint and What 5+ Years Has Taught Us About Resorbable Mesh.

Moderated by Dr. Michael Rosen, MD, FACS, the panel will evaluate the latest data with respect to both complex and more typical size hernias. There will be thoughtful, collegial discussion around challenging the current dogma around hernia recurrence while highlighting newer QOL metrics, the cost of reoperations and long-term outcomes.
