ZweiChirurgen giving a talk at the annual Swiss Midwife Meeting

At the annual meeting of Swiss midwifes PD Dr. Henry Hoffmann and Prof. Philipp Kirchhoff were invited to give a talk about abdominal wall diseases during and after pregnancy. The focus was on abdominal wall weaknesses (such as diastasic reit) and hernias (e.g. umbilical hernia), which are very frequent among woman after giving birth. Here, a close and trustful cooperation between midwifes, physiotherapists and hernia surgeons is the key to a successful interdisciplinary treatment.
