World-class surgeons and allied health professionals will gather in Glasgow next week for the 4th Annual Meeting of BOMSS (January 24-25).
National and international speakers will address the conference on a range of key topics around obesity and bariatric surgery. Subjects covered will include metabolic surgery for diabetes, weight-loss surgery training in the UK, multi-disciplinary working and the European experience.
Professor Duff Bruce, BOMSS Council member, consultant surgeon at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary and lead organiser for the Scientific Meeting, said: “I’m delighted to welcome so many experts to Scotland. Weight-loss surgery is the most clinically effective, safe and cost-effective treatment available for many patients with severe obesity-related diseases.
“BOMSS’ UK-wide National Registry (NBSR) outcomes have been congruent with international data, suggesting that 85% of surgically-treated type 2 diabetics had benefitted and had stopped medications by two years after their procedure.”
