WELCOME TO THE WEBSITE OF THE SERBIAN HERNIA SOCIETY, MEMBER OF THE EUROPEAN HERNIA SOCIETY!
Hernia represents one the most common surgery conditions. Hernia surgery is one of the earliest forms of surgery and currently the most frequently performed operation in general surgery. Success of hernia repair depends largely on the surgeon’s understanding of the functional anatomy and pathophysiology of the abdominal wall , as well as knowledge of how to use the currently available techniques and materials most effectively.
The goals of modern hernia repair must include achievement of an safe and costeffective repair with the lowest possible recurrence, minimal operative and postoperative discomfort with a rapid return to normal activity.
The Serbian Hernia Society is proffesional association whose interest is to provide objective and authoritative information of hernia and its treatment for surgeons, GPs, other healthcare professionals and patients. We are involved with education and training, keeping surgeons up to date with latest hernia guidelines. The Serbian Hernia Society also forms a collaboration channel with other hernia societies worldwide in order to exchange and discuss the latest development in hernia surgery.
“No disease of the human body, belonging to the province of the surgeon, requires in its treatment a better combination of accurate anatomical knowledge with surgical skill than hernia in all its varieties.”
