Meetings & Education
The goal of the AHS is to provide quality education to surgeons who have an interest in hernia surgery and abdominal wall abnormalities. Each year the AHS hosts a Hernia Repair Conference highlighting new techniques, updates in hernia repair, diagnosis of abdominal diseases, implications of hernia surgery, patient management and other very important topics related to general surgery and hernia repair.
The 2021 Americas Hernia Society Annual Meeting will be held LIVE in Austin, Texas on September 23-25, 2021 at the JW Marriott Austin. The two- and one-half-day program will provide a professional forum for the exchange of information and education on the latest trends in hernia surgery and the treatment of abdominal wall abnormalities.
An in-person meeting means the return of our hands-on lab! Join us for the AHS21 Hands-On Cadaver Lab on September 26 – following the annual meeting. The live program will be hosted at a local Austin skills lab minutes from the JW Marriott, the host hotel of the AHS Annual Meeting.
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.
