  Welcome Message


Dr Jitendra Chawla

Organizing Chairman

Dear friends,

We are pleased to invite you to the 16th Annual Conference of Hernia Society of India i.e. HSICON 2022 in the Pink City Jaipur on 1st, 2nd & 3rd September 2022.

The Science of Hernia is evolving since decades, however there are still many doubts in the minds of Surgeons - how to choose the ideal procedure to deliver the best outcomes for patients from

the simple conventional techniques like Bassini, Lichtenstein, Suture repair, Onlay repairs or

recently developed TAPP, TEP, IPOM repairs or

complex newer procedures like e-TEP, e-TEP RS, ACST, PCST - TAR, SCOLA, TARM, MILOS, TAPE etc. which are spreading like wildfire.  And further, which Mesh to choose from the plethora available.

It is very important that we all work together, discuss the scientific research and share our recent knowledge to further strengthen our resolve.

Hence the theme of the conference is aptly decided as "Evolution to Solution".​

So, there should be a loud & clear Take Home Message that conveys clear idea of solutions in different scenarios. 

The groundbreaking scientific programme will draw many pioneers & stalwarts in Hernia surgery from across the Nation & the World. This will provide an ideal platform to refresh our understanding & knowledge base.

Additionally, to enjoy a much needed break and meet each other personally after exhausting pandemic.

​You should be having some better reason to miss this opportunity.

We are looking forward to welcome you & your family in Jaipur.

President's Message


Dr Deepraj Bhandarkar

President, HSI

Dear Friends & Colleagues,

It gives me great pleasure in inviting you to the 16th National Congress of the Hernia Society of India (HSICON 2022) to be held in Jaipur from September 1st – 3rd, 2022.

HSI is a 17-year-old premier surgical association and is the member society representing India in the Asia Pacific Hernia Society (APHS). During the last couple of COVID challenged years, HSI has had to conduct most of its scientific activity as online events. These included several webinars organised during 2020-21 and subsequently conducted monthly “What’s in the case?” and “Insight into Innovations” sessions since late 2021.

The venue for HSICON 2022 – the B. M. Birla Auditorium – situated in the heart of the city is one of the largest in the country and is surrounded by a sprawling 9.8 acre campus. On the first day will have several Master Classes on subjects including basic hernia procedures, newer procedures including component separation, robotic hernia surgery and a cadaveric hernia course. On the same day the delegates will also enjoy live surgeries and get an opportunity to interact with and learn from the experts. The packed scientific program spread over the next two days will include lectures from national and international faculty, panel discussions, debates and case capsules. Dedicated free paper and video sessions will afford younger surgeons and postgraduates an opportunity to be an integral part of this event. Socialising, meeting old colleagues and friends and making new ones will be an important aspect that cannot be overlooked.

The Organising Chairman Dr Jitendra Chawla is a seasoned organiser. He and his team will spare no efforts in making this a memorable event. The Executive Committee of HSI and I look forward to seeing and welcoming you at HSICON 2022, Jaipur on September 1st.

Warm personal regards,

Dr Deepraj Bhandarkar

President, Hernia Society of India
