It is a great honour and privilege for Vienna to be elected to host the 39th congress of the European Hernia Society (EHS) in 2017.

Vienna is not only the historical domain of Theodor Billroth, one of the most important founders of modern abdominal surgery, but is a cultural hub offering art, music, architecture and history for all.  

The meeting entitled "Prevention and Prophylaxis beyond Hernia Surgery" covers topics of ever increasing interest in modern times including cost awareness and patient outcome.

We look forward to welcoming you to a scientific spring time in Vienna.

Vienna is waiting for you!

René H. Fortelny
Congress President
