Dear colleagues,

We look forward to welcoming you to the International Hernia Congress 2021 which will be held in Copenhagen, Denmark 26–29 May 2021.

Reserve the dates for 2021 when the European Hernia Society and the American Hernia Society will join forces once again.

HERNIA 2021 – will be held in Copenhagen and the pre-congress courses just across the bridge in Malmö.

This state-of-the-art congress will bring together a diverse group of young talents, experts, surgeons and companies involved in hernia surgery. Our goal is to bridge high quality evidence with clinical practice. At the congress, you will benefit from high-level scientific presentations, knowledge sharing and networking opportunities. The scientific programme will include keynote lectures, hot hernia topics, pros and cons sessions, free paper sessions, video sessions, industry symposia and posters supported by lots of discussion and interaction.

The congress will be in the top rated facilities within short distance to the airport and the city centre.

We look forward to welcoming you to Copenhagen.

On behalf of the Danish Hernia Database and the Swedish Hernia Registry,

Agneta Montgomery, Ass. Professor MD, PhD - Congress President, Sweden
Lars Nannestad Jørgensen, Professor, MD, DrMSc - Congress President, Denmark
