This Study Day organised by the AfPP, will delve into all things bariatric, exploring weight loss surgery, laparoscopic surgery and open surgery on patients classified as obese. Delegates will gain an insight into this specialty and ease any fears or misconceptions they may have.

Topics include:  

  • Bariatric Procedures and Complications That Can Arise When Carrying Out Surgery
