Session Overview and Target Audience
This symposium will discuss strategies to minimize surgical and nutritional complications and methods to maximize long-tern weight loss. Metabolic & bariatric surgery provides long-term effectiveness for management of severe obesity. However, metabolic & bariatric surgery can be associated with early and late surgical and nutritional complications and long-term risk for weight recidivism. The target audience includes bariatric surgeons, integrated health members, bariatric physicians, and fellows and residents.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Assess strategies to improve the safety and outcome of metabolic & bariatric surgery.
- Discuss strategies to minimize leaks and obstruction after metabolic & bariatric surgery.
