This Congress, as you probably already know, is the greatest worldwide bariatric meeting, usually attended by surgeons, multidisciplinary support staff, researchers, physicians, and other healthcare professionals involved with the primary mission of IFSO: unite and educate against adiposity and metabolic disorders. Academic activities will include amazing and innovative Post Graduate courses that have a great emphasis on Integrated Health activities which will have a presence throughout the whole meeting.

The scientific program will be very comprehensive and focused on updating, investigating and better understanding the most comprehensive array of topics in the field of the growing adiposity-based chronic diseases, through Post Graduate courses, symposia, expert talks, discussion panels, hands-on skill labs, video sessions, paper and poster presentations, emerging, endoscopic and new technology sessions. 

The aim of the Congress is to educate on all the bariatric and metabolic surgery topics, but also to unite across country borders healthcare professionals from different specialties in their fight against the adiposity epidemic.
