PRE CONGRESS – CADAVERIC WORKSHOP

LAPAROFIT

LAPAROFIT entering the 9th edition has evolved as a brand by itself in the field of Bariatric surgical education. With unique ideas and innvotaions the conference has has always been in the forefront in surgical education focussed towards the future.

Cadaveric Workshop registration includes registration for the workshop with working lunch at SRMC and does not include registration for the conference. However conference registration is mandatory.

The theme for this year “Lets talk the untalked-of” where we aim to discuss topics not suavely discussed in most academic events and those with practical importance to bariatric surgeons. This will happen alongside the ASIA PACIFIC SUMMIT ON CLINICAL CARE PATHWAYS.
