Watch this space for ACMOMS X

ACMOMS was conceived eight years back to unite the Asian Bariatric community into one voice so that the world would recognize the growth of bariatric surgery in Asia. We have grown with each passing year, raising the academic bar! Experts from around the world have contributed to the success of ACMOMS!

With rising numbers of bariatric/metabolic surgeries world over there is a proportionate rise in revisional surgery cases. The complex nature of obesity with little published evidence on options for revisional surgery and ambiguity around decision making, pushes revisional surgery into an arena which at times may pose a challenge to surgical wisdom and logic.

This year at ACMOMS we endeavor to take on the arduous and challenging field of "Revisional Bariatric Surgery".

We hope to culminate the meeting with a white paper or reference guide that would bring in some clarity on this difficult subject.
