How can we improve the outcome of Bariatric Surgery?

BeSOMS invites you to its 2ndWinter Symposium on Friday 08 February 2019 in Dolce la Hulpe, Tervuren.

The general theme will be: “How can we improve the outcome of bariatric surgery?”.

In a first session we will elaborate on pre- and postoperative care and try to define a possible pathway for adequate follow-up. We will then focus on technical optimization of the primary bariatric procedure but also try to give solutions in case of failure. To close the day the hot topic of GERD and bariatric surgery will be challenged. All the sessions will end with a round table discussion where we are looking for intense interactivity with the audience.

We hope to welcome you numerously!

Thierry Lafullarde

BeSOMS President
