    Welcome Message

    Selamat Datang,

    As the Organising Chairman of 18th Annual International Congress of the Asia Pacific Hernia Society (APHS 2023), it gives me great pleasure to invite everyone to the beautiful island of Penang for APHS 2023.

    This year’s APHS is themed “Doing Hernia Perfectly Together”. Over the years, hernia has now developed to be a specialised area in surgery and remains the most popular surgical procedure among surgeons, a varied and exuberant expansion in technique and technology is now fueling hernia into the next millennia.

    As this year’s host country, APHS promises to be one of the highlight surgical congresses of the year. With almost 50 industry players and 75 international and local speakers, APHS 2023 is committed to delivering a wonderful programme filled with intellectual discussion and expansive networking.

    We would also like to invite all of you to discover our wonderful island Penang, dubbed The Pearl of the Orient. It truly is the melting pot of Asia with beautiful beaches, delicious food, and wonderful people.

    Finally, as the Organising Chairman, I would like to welcome everyone to become part of this wonderful Congress. See you all in Penang at APHS 2023.

    Terima Kasih.

    Dr Gafoor Mubarak
    Organising Chairman
