Surgeons win 'Best Conference in Scotland' award

On Wednesday 8 October 2014, two of our surgeons proved that their skills go way beyond the theatre by organising an award-winning conference.

Bariatric sugeons, Mr Andrew de Beaux (photographed below) and Mr Bruce Tulloh picked up the award for the 36th Annual International Congress of the European Hernia Society, organised in association with MeetingMakers.

Mr de Beaux said of the awards, "It's fantastic to be recognised for the tremendous efforts we put into running the conference, it was a great day. MeetingMakers did an amazing job of working with us to put the conference together and my wife deserves a special thanks for keeping the kids entertained in the weeks running up to the event!"

The 36th Annual International Congress of the European Hernia Society was held in Edinburgh in May 2014 at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC).

The Congress brought together a wide range of people interested in the diagnosis and treatment of abdominal wall abnormalities and provided a forum to discuss techniques, advances and the science of hernia repair.
