Greetings from IHSCON 2017 & Renai MISCON 2017, Kochi,

It is extremely heartening to note that Dr. R Padmakumar accepted our request to bail us out to organise the 10th National Conference of Indian Hernia Society – IHSCON 2017 along with Renai MISCON 2017 – the International Conference in Surgical Laparoscopy (Live Workshop and CME) on August 4, 5 & 6 at Renai Medicity, Kochi, Kerala.

Groin hernia repair is one of the commonest general surgical procedures performed by general surgeons. Over 700,000 groin hernia repairs are performed each year in USA alone. The exact number in India is not known but according to conservative estimate more than 300,000 repairs are done each year in India. Open hernia repair continues to dominate and associated with significant morbidity if not performed by properly trained surgeons. Open hernia repair is the first elective operation performed by surgical trainees. To focus on surgical treatment of hernia; Shouldice Technique, Bloodgood, Lichtenstein, PHS and laparoscopic (TEP & TAPP) repairs will be demonstrated.

Ventral/incisional hernia repair is the next common hernia performed by general surgeon. In USA alone over 90,000 incisional hernia repair done each year. In India there are no definite data but more then 1,50,000 repairs might be performed according to conservative estimates. Sutured repair is associated with high recurrence rates (As high as 60%). Recurrence rates have significantly come down with the prosthetic repair. Lately laparoscopic repair of ventral/incisional hernia repair has become the standard of care due to overwhelming advantages in terms of reduced postoperative complications and recurrence. HERNIACON 2017 will focus on various aspects of laparoscopic and conventional repair of ventral/incisional hernia.

I welcome you all for active participation during the CME, Conference and live workshop on various techniques for inguinal and ventral/incisional hernia repair. There will be free papers and panel discussion covering various aspects of hernia repair. I am certain that the dynamic team lead by Dr. R Padmakumar and his Team for putting up the absorbing scientific program and live workshop and wonderful hospitality.

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we extend our heartfelt invitation to you.

This will be a grand event in Surgical Laparoscopy with participation of delegates from all over India and neighbouring countries. We have learnt around 10 International faculty as well as reputed faculty from India are expected to actively participate in this event.

We thank you for the wholehearted support to the Team Kochi for organising IHSCON 2017. The conference, PG Course and Live Workshop will be focused on laparoscopic & open repair of inguinal and ventral/incisional hernias. There is exciting Pre-conference training programme for young Surgeons & PGs -4th August 2017. With all best wishes and greetings, I welcome you all to the beautiful City of Cochin, Kerala.

Dr. M.C. Misra
Founder President,
Indian Hernia Society

I must thank you to bail us out from the crisis of not getting a date and venue for IHSCON 2017 and include the “10th National Conference of Indian Hernia Society 2017” along with MISCON 2017 on 4, 5, 6 August 2017 at Kochi.

This suits us very well. I also looked at the comprehensive MISCON schedule and I think addition of scientific inputs from IHSCON should enrich the content and the duo will be a successful venture. As past president of Indian Hernia Society, you have shown the magnanimity for this last minute inclusion. I wish you and your team a great success. I do feel however, that IHS should consider its annual conference once in 2 years.

Indian Hernia Society has grown in the last five years due to constant efforts of the Secretary. It has at present over 1000 membership. The primary aim of IHS is to bring together the surgeons involved in treating patients with various types of hernias on a single platform. This Society aims to provide a forum for research, training and discussion on various aspects of hernia pathophysiology and treatment.

Kochi city has just started with its new state of art Metro service. Kochi has a great history and is a city that has high traditions, enormity of tourist spots and a large number of medical institutions. I believe all this together shall be a great attraction for many professionals to attend this conference.

Dr R Padmakumar and his team have drawn up a very elaborate scientific program which includes three days of workshops and lectures. I am sure the scientific programme and hospitality will be enjoyed by all participants.

I welcome the delegates to this conference and wish them a pleasant stay in the beautiful city - Kochi and enjoy this scientific and cultural extravaganza.

Professor Sandeep Kumar
Indian Hernia Society
