The Aim of this CME Programme was to understand the  anatomical & surgical aspects of Groin Hernia. It also dealt with recent advances in the management of Groin Hernia by esteemed speakers. 

Groin Hernias are dangerous because they tend to keep getting larger & intestines can get trapped inside the bulge & loose its blood supply causing necrosis. Groin Hernias can be indirect, direct & femoral based on location. Their repair is an extremely common operation performed by surgeons.
