      I browsed over to the SAGES site to see what the most recent meeting had to show about hernia repair. Dr. Towfigh chaired a session that was full of interesting questions. The questions alone kind of show the uncertainty in the field. Which, to me, begs the question of “is it better to trust a surgeon that is very confident in poor data, or to trust a surgeon that lacks confidence in poor data?”

      This is from the Saturday session. Unfortunately, as I recall, Saturday sessions are typically poorly attended. They end early and people are already tired from three solid days of presentations (and hospitality suites). Too bad we can’t see the discussion itself.

      Program Outline

      All You Ever Wanted to Know About Groin Hernias, but Were Afraid to Ask
      Hernia, Pediatrics, Guidelines, DEI
      Session Chair: Shirin Towfigh | Session Co-Chairs: Romeo Ignacio & Jeremy Warren

      Inguinal hernias used to be considered a simple operation, but with new technology and concerns over chronic pain and mesh-related complications, how is a surgeon to decide the best plan of care for their patient? We will help answer all the questions that are hard to find in a textbook by introducing experts in the field of advanced inguinal hernia repairs in adults, chronic pain, and pediatric hernias.

      At the conclusion of this session, attendees will be able to:

      Understand how to best tailor inguinal hernia care to the needs and risk factors of the patient.
      Learn techniques to evaluate and treat patients with chronic pain after inguinal hernia repair.
      Discriminate how to choose inguinal hernia technique for teenagers, mesh averse patients, and other special populations.

      This caught my eye

      “Inguinal hernias used to be considered a simple operation, but with new technology and concerns over chronic pain and mesh-related complications, how is a surgeon to decide the best plan of care for their patient?”

      Whats wrong with simple is the obvious question?

      Preventing diastasis includes weight control, especially during pregnancy, and strengthening the abdominal wall. These measures are linked to the adoption of healthy habits, including a balanced diet and regular physical exercise. Attractive Desire
