Dr. Brian Jacob is a world-renowned surgeon with many years of expertise in chronic pain, weight loss, and hernia procedures. He has helped thousands of patients with innovative and minimally invasive procedures designed to help restore their quality of life. As president of the International Hernia Collaboration, he is excited to share his knowledge and techniques with you. From May 9-12 in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, you can gain access to a closer look at the ground-breaking methods that have helped Dr. Jacob transform lives. Here are a few things you can expect to learn during your trip and how you can put the knowledge to work.
Ventral Hernia Training
Are you interested in learning the ins and outs of performing a Ventral Hernia procedure? Dr. Jacob has prepared several interactive trainings designed to show you the intricacies of different ventral hernia surgeries, including complex and simple procedures.
You’ll also learn about several incision strategies and how to plan around rectus diastasis’s potential effects on your procedure.
If you’re looking to get your hands dirty during your stay in Rio, you don’t want to miss the hands-on lab taking place on May 12th. Surgeons will have the opportunity to test their skills and try out new procedures using an animal model. Some of the procedures that mentors will instruct surgical teams on include Laparoscopic Inguinal Herniorrhaphy, Ventral TAPP, and IPOM plus. If you’re looking to expand your surgical repertoire, the hands-on lab is the tool to help you do so.
Unfortunately, not every procedure goes perfectly, and it’s essential to know what to do should an emergency present itself. The emergencies and complications training demonstrates some of the rare and unforeseen complications that can come with hernia surgery. During this training, you’ll get a first-hand view of dangerous situations and strategies you can use to get things back on track and protect your patient.
Get to Know Other Surgeons
One of the most exciting parts of the conference is connecting with other prominent surgeons. You can trade ideas, share stories and enjoy each other’s company while Dr. Jacob shares his experience with you.
