Dear collegues,

the growing epidemic of obesity burdens all over the world is fully expressed by the term “globesity”.

The myriad of medical, social and economics implications of morbid obesity have highlighted during the last decades the limitations of the conservative noninterventional medical treatment.

Today laparoscopic bariatric/metabolic surgery provides the greatest, most reliable and durable benefits for the obese patients with severe complications, allowing the “cure” of type 2 diabetes, sleep apnea and cardiovascular diseases in the majority of cases.

However, the obese represent a challenge for surgeons, anesthesiologists and all the members of the multidisciplinary team.

The “globesity” challenge requires all the efforts of a multidisciplinary team to offer the best standard of care and to guarantee a safe and effective perioperative management of the obese patients both in bariatric and general surgery procedures. In this international workshop we will share the experience of European bariatric centers of excellence and update interdisciplinary guidelines for perioperative management of the obese patient.

Leading experts will build the framework of the workshop focusing on preoperative workup, preoperative, intraoperative and postoperative management. Sufficient time will be reserved to discussion during the scientific sessions.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Latina
