V Annual Consensus Conference


Welcome by MGB-OAGB International Club

Dear friends and colleagues,

On behalf of the International MGB-OAGB Club it is our distinct pleasure to cordially invite you to our 2018 Annual Consensus Conference that will take place in Valladolid (Spain) on June 28th and 29th of 2018.

The excellent results that have been obtained in bariatric and metabolic surgery with the MGB-OAGB techniques during the last years, have turned them into the third most popular procedure in the world. MGB-OAGB is increasingly being sought both by surgeons and patients, and in some countries it has become the most common form of gastric bypass performed. There is indeed an exponential growth in the number of colleagues who want to become familiar with these techniques.

Our International Meeting will be a great opportunity for renown bariatric leaders and MGB-OAGB experts to thoroughly debate controversial aspects surrounding these procedures.

Join us in our quest of marking another milestone in the history of the bariatric and metabolic surgery. We definitely look forward to see you in Valladolid!
