Following the overwhelming successes of previous LIBSS’s, I hereby announce the dates for the next symposium on 24th and 25th November, 2022 face to face in the beautiful city of London – please pencil the dates in your diary and register NOW!.  I look forward to welcoming you all again.

Once again, the LIBSS will bring together international and national faculty to an amazing program that is filled with talks, debates and panel discussion on controversies, management of complications and innovations in the field of obesity, bariatric and metabolic surgery. As before, there will also be talks for bariatric dieticians, psychologists and nurse specialists (Allied / Integrated Health Professionals) on both the days.

The Symposium has been accredited by the Royal College of Surgeons, and awarded a total of 12.0 CPD points. 

The abstract submission is now open from both Doctors and Allied Health Professionals. The winner of the best oral presentation will get an Editor signed copy of Obesity, Bariatric & Metabolic Surgery – A Practical Guide.a

The venue of the conference will be the Grand Sapphire Hotel, 45 Imperial Way, Croydon, Greater London CR0 4RR. Check the link for more :

LIBSS 2021 was organized virtually on 25th & 26th November 2021. We had over 510 attendees from 45 different countries around the world – thank you for making it a huge success. There were numerous feedbacks following the symposium, a couple of them are as follows:

I have attended a few national & International congress in the Covid times on Zoom; However, this is a Phenomenal Complex feat to meet the right time zones of the 5 continents by one person.

Top class meeting | Excellent Time keeping | No Glitches | Best Global team | Great Varied Programme | Its 5* Congress

This was a huge undertaking and you pulled it off. It was easily the best virtual organization, and I have been part of an Excellent AV team.
