Yes! It’s that time of the year again! After five successful editions of the Asian Consensus Meeting on Metabolic Surgery (ACMOMS), Centre for Obesity and Digestive Surgery (CODS), is back with ACMOMS VI. In keeping with our aim to create one Voice for Asia, this year; we have brought together the best, most experienced and renowned members of the Asian bariatric community.
ACMOMS is set to be bigger and better this year with 150+ delegates, 20+ speakers, from over 12 countries; coming together on a common platform to identify, understand, and address the opportunities and challenges prevalent in the field of bariatric surgery, especially in the Asian region.
With its rare blend of Italian and Tudor architecture, built completely using Italian marble, the Falaknuma Palace, whose name means a ‘reflection of the sky on earth’, seems like a perfect venue for ACMOMS VI. In fact, when you have so many stars of the bariatric medicine community under one roof; all sharing knowledge and experiences; even the sky is hardly a limit! Consisting of a series of events, including conferences, debates, and even a live operative workshop, scheduled on 5th and 6th July, 2013; ACMOMS VI promises to be an enriching and exciting experience!
Debates, panel discussions, and talks about types of bariatric surgery, its relevance while treating other diseases, and even seemingly futuristic phenomena like robotics in bariatric surgery.
A Nutrition Master Class that will bring together, national and international obesity and nutrition experts from India and the world; to share their knowledge about the critical role of nutrition in bariatric surgery.
A Bariatric Nutrition Round Table that will see experts and attendees get vital insights from presentations of research papers dealing with nutrition specific to various types and stages of bariatric surgeries and procedures.
The first IEF Operative workshop; where reputed weight loss surgeon, Dr. Lakdawala, along with Dr. C.K. Huang from Taiwan; will demonstrate various types of surgeries in order to help surgeons watch and learn techniques, how to prevent complications, how to perform single incision surgeries, etc.
Not only is ACMOMS widely supported by international surgeons and leading medical equipment companies like Johnson & Johnson and Covidien; but also sees eminent bariatric surgeons, leaders, and celebrities from India in attendance.
Considering the good work that has been done so far, expectations from ACMOMS VI are at an all-time high. And team CODS, under the guidance of Dr. Lakdawala, is prepared to deliver what is expected and much more!
