Course OverView

Bariatric Surgery is remarkably safe. Thus complications are few and far between and only the rare individual surgeon will likely encounter enough complication volume to develop true expertise at management of the most common complication scenarios. Expanded learning comes through shared experiences. This course will highlight video graphic depiction of bariatric surgical complication management including: intraoperative/perioperative complications, long term complications, and unique scenarios. Plan for a series of 5-7 minute videos with debate of management by audience and faculty.

Target Audience

This course is designed for Bariatric Surgeons, Surgically Orientated Integrated Health, Residents, and Fellows.

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Discuss/Debate management of intraoperative and perioperative complications of common bariatric procedures
  • Discuss/Debate management of long term complications of common bariatric procedures
