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 us as Dr. John Fischer presents the significance of looking after the abdominal wall as it relates to hernia prevention and treatment. This discussion will include the important roles biomaterials, patient selection, optimization and surgical technique have in the pursuit of achieving optimal patient outcomes for abdominal wall reconstruction. He will also share the clinical experiences and new long-term data that are critical to the decision making he utilizes in continually improving the treatment he provides his patients.
