Overview:

Bariatric/metabolic surgery consistently increases longevity, but the chronic nature of the disease and the anatomic constructs that we perform can result in unanticipated side effects, complications and treatment failures. This course will be a comprehensive overview of revision procedures and algorithms used in the treatment of common complications as well as improving performance after surgery. Target Audience: Surgeons, Integrated Health Providers, Endoscopists, Dieticians, anyone interested in the long-term care of bariatric/metabolic surgery patients

Objectives:

  • Diagnose and treat common complications of the AGB, GBP, DS, and VSG procedures
  • Understand the role of endoscopy in the treatment of complications
  • Develop treatment algorithms for suboptimal treatment and/or failures (inadequate weight loss/control of metabolic syndrome) after surgery.
