Although bariatric surgery is the most effective treatment for obesity, a challenge with the long term effectiveness of bariatric surgery is the problem of weight regain. At this joint TOS/ASMBS symposium, you will have an opportunity to learn about the biology and predictors of weight regain, and effective medical and surgical strategies to manage this clinical conundrum. Attendees can also look forward to learning about the evolving role of novel precision medicine techniques to manage obesity. You don’t want to miss this opportunity to learn from the experts!
To understand the metabolic adaptations to weight loss, and predictors of weight regain after bariatric surgery
To gain an understanding of medical and surgical strategies to manage weight regain
To understand the concept of precision medicine; and the utility of genetic information to diagnose and treat individuals with obesity, or to predict and prevent obesity.
