"Stay Current: Laparoscopic Pediatric Inguinal Hernia Repair"
Recently, the non-mesh laparoscopic pediatric hernia repair in children and adolescents has gained immense popularity. This event, "Stay Current: Laparoscopic Pediatric Inguinal Hernia Repair" was designed to provide practicing surgeons what they need to know in order to perform this procedure on their own and focused on the fine points of the technique.

​We presented many of the different options available for the non-mesh lap inguinal hernia repair and then focus on the specific steps of the lap-assisted, percutaneous technique. Live cases only available to ON-SITE participants in Akron, OH, but the didactic portion of the course will be simulcasted for the virtual audience. The different techniques and instrumentation are demonstrated through in-depth, evidence-based discussions, review of edited surgical videos, and discussion of surgical tips and tricks. On-site participants will watch live surgical cases and have the opportunity for direct one on one discussion with the faculty.
