A Note From Dr. Shikora:

Please make plans to join us on the weekend of September 21-22 in Memphis, TN for the 16th Bariatric Summit. For the past 14 years, surgeons and other health care professionals have gathered at the Bariatric Summit to explore leading-edge clinical and technical innovations related to the advanced management and treatment of severe obesity.

This informal and interactive program has been developed to address the educational needs of the entire surgical team towards achieving and maintaining the rigorous standards associated with becoming a Center of Excellence.

Once again, this year's program will showcase relevant and cutting edge talks from well-known thought leaders in Bariatric Surgery, focusing on a spectrum of the most relevant issues in bariatric surgery. We will review decision-making, operative strategies, advanced technical details, controversies, management of complications and many other topics including the essentials of a successful bariatric program.

Please join us for another exciting Bariatric Summit.
