The 15th Annual Bariatric Summit Returns to Boston

This September, the Bariatric Summit will return to its roots and host the 2018 meeting in Boston, MA. Over the past 14 years, the conference has taken place in preferred locations across the United States, including Amelia Island, Charleston, New Orleans, Baltimore, Nashville, Austin, and Savannah. It has united general surgeons, bariatric physicians, dietitians, nutritionists, psychologists, plastic surgeons, and other health care professionals dedicated to the management of severe obesity.

Course director, Scott A. Shikora, MD, who has lead the conference since the beginning, always looks to showcase relevant and cutting-edge talks from well-known thought leaders in bariatric surgery, focusing on a spectrum of hot topics in the industry.

This year's conference will hold up the high standards that attendees have become accustomed to. The Summit will explore leading-edge clinical and technical innovations related to the advanced management and treatment of severe obesity. The 2018 agenda will review decision-making, operative strategies, advanced technical details, controversies, management of complications, and many other topics in bariatric surgery, including the essentials of a successful bariatric program.
