We are delighted to announce the launch of the AHS Webinars series! This series of 13 free webinars is designed to keep you up to date with the latest innovations and cutting-edge technologies in hernia surgery. The webinars provide convenient training with no downtime for travel. Expert faculty ensure you get top-quality and authoritative guidance on Preperitoneal VHR, Robotic TAPP, Retrorectus (Robotar), and much more! Each webinar will give you an opportunity to discuss the lecture in an interactive Q&A session with a team of expert panelists.
All webinars and live Q&A sessions will be hosted on the International Hernia Collaboration (IHC) platform. No registration is required. However, be advised, you must be an IHC member to view the Webinars and participate in the Q&A session. To join, please visit the IHC Facebook Group page.
