Surgeons from across the country and from Bangladesh attended the course where they witnessed surgery on 11 cases of complex groin and ventral hernia. The procedures demonstrated were IPOM plus, TAPP, eTEP for groin and ventral hernia, SCOLA, TAR and Peritoneal flap hernioplasty. Operating faculties were Dr Sarfaraz Baig, Dr Pallawi Priya and Dr Ashwin Thangavelu.

Surgeons also got the opportunity to get hands on training during the course

Here are a few feedbacks from the attending surgeon –

“It has been a great learning experience in terms of unfolding the hernia jagron from SCOLA to PCS. Dr Sarfaraz Baig Sir, Dr Pallavi n team helped us go through complex hernia procedure in a simple manner with lot of  clarity on technical aspect. Dr Ashwin upgraded our knowledge on role of radiology in hernia pre and post-surgery besides helping us learn the video editing and uploading techniques.

There were active academic sections in between the cases and we had witnessed almost all AWR procedures during our stay. Theorical discussion and presentations were also very informative and thoroughly explained. I thank Dr Sarfaraz and his team for giving me the opportunity.”
