As yet another example of ALA surgeons’ commitment to providing the best patient care possible, two of our surgeons traveled more than 3,600 miles to learn from and teach their peers.
Dr. Hans Schmidt and Dr. Toghrul Talishinskiy attended the 24th International Federation of the Surgery for Obesity and Metabolic Disorders (IFSO) World Congress. The conference took place in Madrid, Spain in early September 2019.
The IFSO World Congress is one of the top conferences for bariatric surgeons. This year, some of the world’s best bariatric surgeons presented on a truly staggering array of topics.
A sampling included:
- Preoperative preparation
- Low BMI gastric bypass
- Gastric sleeve in combination with other procedures
- Post-surgical complications
- Cognitive changes after bariatric surgery
…and so much more.
Among the presenters were Dr. Schmidt and Dr. Talishinskiy, who had unique insights into a fascinating case from their patient files. They wanted to spread the lessons they’ve learned from working on the case to other surgeons from around the globe, and the IFSO World Congress was the perfect venue to do so.
At ALA, our surgeons are dedicated to staying at the top of their craft. Dr. Schmidt and Dr. Talishinskiy were able to learn new insights from other surgeons around the world, insights they took back to their colleagues at ALA and, ultimately, to their patients.
