Looking into the medical community there is an urgent need for unity in the fight against the growing pandemic of obesity, both in Qatar and internationally. So let us join hands and share our ideas. This unique summit will focus on the management of revisional and complicated bariatric surgeries.

We will also have live surgery sessions during the summit to provide us with technical knowledge from experts around the world and to support us to adopt new techniques in our practice for revisional and complicated bariatric surgeries.
