Since 2009, EHS has published guidelines on the prevention and/or management of different types of hernia, as well as important methods in hernia surgery. The aim of these guidelines is to support the use of evidence-based approaches to hernia management. In cases where evidence is lacking, the guidelines are based on expert consensus. The guidelines are regularly updated. 

EHS has also developed guidelines in collaboration with international partner societies and endorsed guidelines which have been developed by other groups of experts.

All the guidelines developed or endorsed by EHS are listed here, and work is ongoing to cover more topics.
