On behalf of the Society of Bariatric and Metabolic Surgery, we are delighted and honored to invite you to the second edition of the national congress to be held on November 21 to 24, 2019.
Obesity and obesity-related Type-2 Diabetes Mellitus are two of the top epidemic diseases for the 21st century. The prevalence of obesity is booming. Just as it is the case around the world, the ever-increasing number of patients and surgical procedures require a standardized type of training and scientific cooperation among the parties, and make it an obligation to follow scientific research, publications and technological advances as they increase at an incredible rate.
Bariatric and metabolic surgeries are performed through laparoscopic and robotic means in line with the technological developments and innovations. The congress is set to gather high-quality and experienced specialists as a part of courses where technology meets surgical procedures, as well as conferences, panel discussions, live streams, meet-the-expert-meetings and round table discussions, and intended for the representation, contribution and participation of all the parties to bariatric and metabolic surgery.
The inputs of our distinguished colleagues for the congress to be held at Ela Quality Hotel, Antalya are invaluable.
