Dear Esteemed Colleagues,

It is my great honour and  pleasure to extend our heartfelt invitation to the World Congress of Abdominal Wall Hernia Surgery (WCHS) 2024, which will take place in the vibrant, tropical city of Singapore, from October 9 - 12 2024.

Singapore is a thriving metropolis that offers a world-class environment, a vibrant living space with a rich multiracial culture where you will experience different perspectives in terms of culture, religion, food, language and history. 

We will welcome all of you from all over the world,  under the overarching theme of "Adopting Technology, Improving Care in Abdominal Wall Hernia".

WCHS 2024 promises to be an unparalleled opportunity for collaboration, learning, and innovation in the field of hernia surgery. With over 10 pre-Congress Workshops and Masterclasses, more than 40 Scientific Sessions, Guest Lectures by Hernia Legend, Meet The Experts Sessions, and a stellar lineup of more than 120 renowned worldwide faculty members, the Congress will offer a comprehensive platform for the exchange of knowledge and expertise.

It is with great pride that we will welcome Friends and Colleagues from every corner of the globe to celebrate this important milestone. As we gather to share our collective experiences and expertise, we aim to not only advance the field of hernia surgery but also strengthen bonds of camaraderie and collaboration that transcend geographical boundaries.

With a fully comprehensive scientific program drafted by an outstanding International Scientific  Committee that will showcase the latest research and advancements in abdominal wall hernia disease, from aetiology and pathogenesis to imaging, from prevention to genetics, from prehabilitation to surgery, from surgical technology to new biomaterials,  WCHS 2024 promises to be a truly enriching and rewarding experience for all of You.

We look forward to welcoming each of you to Singapore, where together, we will chart the course for the future of hernia surgery.
