During the 1ST and the 2ND SWISS HERNIA DAYS in 2017 and 2018 many national and international hernia experts and more than 270 participants followed our invitation to Basel each year. With the last congress mottos “challenges and innovations in ventral hernia repair” and “controversies in guideline-conform therapy of inguinal hernias” participants were updated with innovations and current concepts in the field of hernia surgery. Also, for the first time the Swiss Hernia Days International Fellowship was awarded.
