ACMOMS 6 – Controversies in Metabolic Surgery
July 5 and 6, 2013 Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh

For scores of obese patients who hardly had any long term option for weight loss or riddance from comorbidities, Bariatric Surgery came as an immense source of relief. It has however been dogged by controversies ever since its inception. Despite great results, sckeptics have kept up the fire of controversy around it.

Delightfully enough, the answers to these questions have constantly evolved as innumerable technological advances went on taking place. This resulted into creation of medical literature across the world about the long term results Bariatric Surgery could achieve.

Did somebody say, "No great advance has ever been made in science, politics or religion without controversy"? We take this opportunity – now that the controversy has made Bariatric Surgery so well-known -- to once again bring together surgeons, diabetologists and all players in the field on one platform to dwell on "Controversies in Metabolic Surgery".
