We will have a two segment session:

The first one will address the "New trends in the treatment of obesity and in metabolic surgery”. The most important goal is to outline the near future of this worldwide important health problem not only from the surgical and endoscopic point of view, but from the new medical non-surgical approaches. At the end of this initial session the participants will have a complete panoramic view of how the new investigations and novel treatments are developing and shaping the future of our specialty.

The second part will be a “Video based education session”. In this segment the fellows of IFSO LAC Fellowship program will present the best documented cases in their training hospitals under the mentoring of their teachers. This very attractive session will allow these young surgeons to practice their presentation skills, to defend their treatment, and on the other hand, the audience will enjoy and learn about interesting real cases. It is always a fresh experience to discuss with young colleagues.
