Metabolic Surgery has become a critical topic of discussion. It is not often that a disease like Diabetes is changing its paradigms in a Medical community, from a purely medical disease to various alternatives such as surgery, endoscopic procedures and new drugs.
In this AIS LATAM Event, we will be discussing the role of Metabolic Surgery in Latin America, a region that makes crucial contributions to the development of new guidelines in Bariatric / Metabolic Surgery.
We will hold a panel discussion with renowned Diabetes specialists: Dr. Carel Le Roux from Ireland will be addressing the mechanism by which surgery contributes to metabolic control of diabetes. Dr. Rodolfo Lahsen from Chile will describe the diabetes crisis in Latin America with the latest advances in medical treatment. Dr. Ricardo Cohen from Brazil will show the contribution of surgery to control of the disease. And Dr. Camilo Boza from Chile will be presenting the various surgical options in metabolic surgery, and the results of the main prospective randomized trials.
This World Event will include Live Surgeries from the main leaders in the Region. Dr. Almino Ramos will be performing a Gastric Bypass from Hospital 9 de Julio in Sao Paulo, and Dr. Ricardo Funke will be carrying out a Sleeve Gastrectomy from Clínica las Condes in Santiago. At the same time, we will be holding a live debate on which surgery should be considered the primary Metabolic Surgery .
The entire event will be broadcast worldwide on the AIS Channel platform. Let’s keep connecting the entire surgical community around the world!
