Vail, Colorado

University Hospitals in conjunction with Case Western Reserve University School of medicine coordinates a highly regarded annual conference, the Abdominal Wall Reconstruction (AWR) Summit.

Our Comprehensive Hernia Center Director, Yuri Novitsky, MD is the director of the AWR Summit. Dr. Novitsky is a member of the American Hernia Society Board of Governors.

The reconstruction of abdominal wall defects remains one of the most challenging dilemmas facing surgeons. Congenital, acquired or post traumatic defects all present unique challenges to the reconstructive surgeon. This comprehensive and highly interactive reconstructive Summit is suited for all surgeons involved in abdominal wall reconstruction, including general, plastic, and trauma surgeons.

This summit will stress detailed operative descriptions of each of the experts’ approaches to these reconstructive challenges to provide the surgeon valuable insight through video education and an interactive panel of reconstructive surgeons.
