Welcome message

Dear Colleagues,

It is our pleasure to welcome you to the Sixth National Symposium of Bariatric & Metabolic Surgery.
As metabolic surgery is in a continuous and rapid evolution, the 2014 National Symposium proposes to all the participants very interesting subjects concentrated around the main theme: Continous Progress 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.

There are to be presented surgical guidelines for metabolic procedures, as well as particular cases and interesting experiences from almost all the departments involved in such programs. Also, there will be discussed the strategies 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 2014 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 of 2014!

We believe that the Sixth National Symposium of Bariatric & Metabolic Surgery will mark another important step in the development of Metabolic Surgery in Romania!

Cătălin Copăescu, MD, PhD
Symposium Director
