Dear Colleagues and Dear Participants;
Our struggle in the field of Obesity and Metabolic Diseases Surgery continues in Turkey for the last 30 years.
During this period, we planned to train scientists and patients in this field in our country with numerous courses, congresses and scientific activities.
I believe that we are successful in this struggle. metabolic surgery is currently performed each year 20,000 patients on surgery and complication rate in Turkey is lower than world standards.
In order to discuss the current approaches and multidisciplinary working principles in metabolic surgery at the 6th National and 5th Mediterranean Metabolic Diseases Congress we organized for this purpose, all our general surgeon endochronologist, dietician, psychiatrist, psychologist, anesthesiologist, anesthesiologist, and nurse colleagues as part of this process I will be glad to see you among us.
Our country is among the first countries among obesity and metabolic diseases among European countries. For this reason, in this year's meeting, we will discuss how to combat obesity and coordinate with world standards, and how to perfect surgical techniques in the light of ethical rules and spread them.
It is a source of honor and happiness for our friends who are interested in this subject to exchange their knowledge with each other in a short period of time with one-to-one simulation applications, 6 live surgical interventions accompanied by national and international trainers.
This year, we would like to give our young friends the chance to have more presentations and to interactively discuss and question with experts from abroad and domestic fields.
We will have a friendly and qualified congress with our colorful social program. Hope to see you on October 17, 2019.
