Publications The reality of general surgery training and increased complexity of abdominal wall hernia surgery

Conclusion A tailored approach is now employed and seen more so in hernia surgery and this fact is referred to and highlighted

in the contemporaneous hernia guidelines published to date. In addition, with the increasing complexity of abdominal

wall surgery, the number of procedures actually performed by trainees is no longer considered adequate to overcome any

recognized learning curve. Therefore, to supplement general surgery training young surgeons should be offered a clinical

fellowship to obtain an additional qualification as an abdominal wall surgeon and thus improve their clinical and operative

experience under supervision in this field. Practicing general surgeons with a special interest in hernia surgery can undertake

intensive further training in this area by participating in clinical work shadowing in hernia centers, workshops and congresses.
