Welcome Note from the President
APBMSS is a young society, established in 2006 by a group of enthusiast in bariatric surgery and since then we have slowly growing with a lot of challenge due to the several issue that arise from our continent and the several countries. Obesity is increasing worldwide in both developed and developing countries as results of an epidemic that is affecting all health care systems. In Asia, the raising of associated co-morbidities makes it more relevant for the public health ministries. We all know that surgery carried out wit low morbidities and good outcomes is the only one, able to challenge the raise of obesity and diabesity in Asia.
Bariatric surgery is growing rapidly in our region and the role of our society will be important in leading the development and the advances that all we are going to face. This new technologies have completely overhauled our practice with a variety of options now available for a tailored surgery and for a better patient’s outcome.
The role of APBMSS through all our members and through our endorsed Events and our Biennial Congress play a great role in spreading the awareness of the surgical efficacy and quality of life of the patients.
