It is our pleasure to welcome you to the VIIIth National Symposium of Bariatric & Metabolic Surgery.
Metabolic surgery is in a continuous and rapid evolution and the 2016 National Symposium proposes to all the participants very interesting subjects concentrated around the main theme: Looking for Better Outcomes in Metabolic Surgery.
This event offers the chance to interact with Romanian and international surgeons, endocrinologists, anesthesiologists and other healthcare professionals involved in bariatric programs.
Surgical guidelines for metabolic procedures, as well as particular cases and interesting experiences from almost all the departments involved in such programs will be presented. Also, there will be discussions regarding different strategies one should apply in order to avoid or treat common complications following these operations.
The multidisciplinary approach of the metabolic patient is a reality and a necessity, topic which is proposed for debate during the 2016 edition of the symposium.
We invite you to share your experience with both Romanian and international colleagues by participating and submitting abstracts to the most important bariatric surgery event in 2016!
We believe that the VIIIth National Symposium of Bariatric & Metabolic Surgery will mark another important step in the development of Metabolic Surgery in Romania!
