About Congress

It is our pleasure and honor to invite you to the 15th B.E.S.T Congress on the 3rd and 4th December 2018! The main topic of this year’s B.E.S.T. meeting will be “A QUEST FOR ALGORITHMS IN REVISIONAL BARIATRIC-METABOLIC PROCEDURES”.

Both congress days will include some 12 live surgery transmissions from the AZ Sint-Jan hospital. In addition, high standard lectures, lively debates with a voting system and conclusive round ups after each session will try to orient you towards possible algorithms for the different revisional procedures. Finally, in a parallel session, revisional bariatic surgery videoclips will be presented to illustrate the topics discussed.

The congress is IFSO endorsed and has been accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) for a maximum of 16 European CME credits (ECMEC®s).

ESPCOP, the European Society For Perioperative Care of Obese Patients organizes a Parallel Sesion in Room 3:
