Description

Overall Course Objective

This course is intended for general surgeons interested in the field of bariatric surgery who have experience in minimally invasive (MIS). This 2-day course will provide participants with in-depth teaching and hands-on training by international experts.

Course Description

The purpose of this course is to train general and MIS surgeons in the techniques of Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass, Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastectomy, Duodenal Switch and revisional procedures.
