Event Overview
Welcome message:

Dear Friends, Colleagues,
It's with pride, pleasure and not little apprehension that I announce the 1st World Conference on Abdominal Wall Hernia Surgery that will be held in Milano at the MIC Plus Congress Center from 25th to 29th of April 2015.
This unique event will see the participation of the three-year joint congress of the European Hernia Society and the American Hernia Society and the annual congresses of the Asia-Pacific Hernia Society, the Australasian Hernia Society and the Afro Middle East Hernia Society.
The peculiarity and specificity of this event is not only the fact that all the major experts as well as all the different experiences of the five continents will be gathered under the same assizes, but also the fact that throughout the year 2015 there isn't going to be any other international congress of these Societies.
This event will bring together for the first time all the opinions as well as the different experiences of the surgeons of the five continents.
It will definitely be a challenge since it won't certainly be easy to conciliate the needs of the five International Societies with all the organizational problems that a congress of this size has to face.
Besides, in the scientific program there will be not only the scientific, technical and resulting considerations of the most expert surgeons in the world, but also and especially the problems that emerge from all the surgeons interested in this type of pathology, as well as the most updated and technologic answers coming from all the companies that manufacture the materials, the prosthesis and the equipment in this field.
The confrontation will be tight, thorough and innovative in the light of the best evidence practice and of a real evidence of the results.
All voices will be heard, the ones that come from modern surgical centers and also the ones that come from surgical centers from less industrialized countries.
Therefore the confrontation will evolve based on common problems, on the results of the scientific works published in the last 5 years with the elaboration of the present and future projects of the manufacturing companies, all with one common objective: the well being of the patient.
CampanelliI look forward to meeting you all in Milan in 2015.

Prof. Giampiero Campanelli
Chairman of the 1st World Conference on Abdominal Wall Hernia Surgery
General Secretary of the European Hernia Society
