LAPAROSCOPIC BARIATRIC SURGERY

Prevalence of morbid obesity is rising and leads to an increased risk of comorbidities including cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and some cancers. Bariatric surgery is more effective in achieving weight loss than non-surgical management and weight loss is more likely to be maintained in the longer term. Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) is the gold standard approach of bariatric surgery. This course aims to review indications, discuss the management of complications and highlight technical aspects of primary and revisional bariatric surgery. The program will include theoretical presentations, discussion of clinical cases, videos, and at least 50% of the time is designated for hands-on practice in porcine and ex-vivo models. Trainees will be introduced to laparoscopic suturing techniques and to the main bariatric procedures, such as gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, mini-gastric bypass and duodenal switch.
