WELCOME MESSAGE FROM THE IFSO-EC PRESIDENT
As current president of the IFSO-EC, it is my privilege to announce and invite you to the first IFSO European Chapter Symposium, which will be held together with the 2nd Meditarranean Obesity surgery summit and the Bariatric and Metabolic Live Surgery symposium in Naples, May 11–13, 2017 under the Presidency of Prof Luigi Angrisani.
During the past decades, European specialists, both surgeons and non-surgeons, have played a major role in the development of one of the leading field in modern surgery, bariatric and metabolic surgery. Nowadays, the IFSO-EC is the largest chapter of the IFSO in regards of the number of adhrering countries. For these reasons, but also and mainly to provide our members with a yearly platform within Europe and the Chapter to present their results and exchange views with colleagues, IFSO-EC has decided to hold a symposium each year when the biannual IFSO-EC congress does not take place, the next one being scheduled in May 2018.
It is therefore an honor for me to welcome you to this first IFSO-EC symposium in Naples, and to encourage everyone active in the bariatric/metabolic field to attend and actively participate and present their latest results and views. The program committee is currently working in order to put forward an interesting and varied program, which will include live surgery, debates, oral and poster presentations, integrated health sessions, a world IFSO symposium, and possibly sub-specialty symposia.
Naples is a magnificient city and the Naples bay with the Vesuvio and the facing Island of Capri are renown worldwide for their beauty. Italian cuisine does not need introduction, and I am sure every attendee will enjoy both the scientific level of the symposium as well as the Italian lifestyle in May 2017.
President, IFSO European Chapter
