Bariatric surgery remains the most safe and effective treatment of obesity and its obesity-related comorbidities. Clinicians are frequently asked to evaluate and treat these patients before and after bariatric surgery. In this symposium, three distinguished speakers with review and recommend the practical pre and post operative medical and nutritional management, describe innovative endoscopic procedures and novel devices. Finally, we will address strategies to optimize weight loss and to treat post operative weight regain.
