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.

Annual Meeting

The 2023 American Hernia Society Annual Meeting will be held September 21-23, 2023, in Austin, TX. This three-day program will provide a professional forum for the exchange of information and education on the latest trends in hernia surgery. More information coming soon.

Twitter Journal Club

The AHS Education Committee will be leading a monthly series of Twitter-based journal clubs in 2022. Our Twitter-based journal clubs will allow for easy participation using the dedicated #AHSJC hashtag, allowing anyone to follow along and contribute to the conversation.
