MedStar Georgetown University Hospital is pleased to announce the 11th Annual Abdominal Wall Reconstruction Conference taking place on June 6 – 8, 2019 in Washington, DC.

The Conference is a comprehensive two-day symposium. The purpose of this highly interactive meeting is to offer an evidence-based discussion on all aspects of AWR through didactic lectures with video education and case presentations to address the growing rate of hernia repairs and updates in technology and procedures. Currently, there are approximately 350,000 ventral hernia repairs performed annually in the United States and the patient population continues to be increasingly complex with significant co-morbidities. This conference will address the high overall complication rate as well as the association of ventral hernia repair as the cause of the second highest postoperative readmission rate. The agenda is constructed to provide the participants with an in-depth understanding of the complexity of AWR. The course is comprised of internationally renowned faculty that are a diverse group of experts chosen from the disciplines of general and plastic surgery, based upon their ongoing contributions to the field of abdominal wall reconstruction. The individual sessions will focus on patient optimization, selection of surgical approach and reinforcement material for different patient populations, and management of complications.

Learners will receive 16.25 Interprofessional Continuing Education (IPCE) credits for learning and change.
