It will also feature patient perspectives about operative and non-operative management of parastomal hernia from Sue Blackwell (a patient representative from UK).

Attendees will leave with an enhanced and practical understanding of the many ways to tackle parastomal hernia from a surgical perspective. Having heard from some of the world’s foremost experts on this, they will also be able to network with lecturers and fellow workshop delegates on the ESCP app.
