POST GRADUATE FELLOWSHIP COURSE IN LAPAROSCOPIC BARIATRIC SURGERY

Eligibility criteria

  • M.S. in General Surgery or equivalent
  • D.N.B in General Surgery or equivalent

Objective of the course:

  • In the last 20 years Asia has witnessed an unprecedented economic growth. This newfound affluence coupled with genetic factors have made Asians susceptible to obesity which in turn has lead to a steep rise in the incidence of non-communicable diseases like type 2 diabetes mellitus, hypertension, dyslipidemia, IHD, obstructive sleep apnea, joint pains, gout, gall stone disease, fatty liver, PCOD and so on. India currently has the dubious distinction of being the diabetic capital of the world.
  • Bariatric surgery is the only proven cure for morbid obesity and related disorders. Bariatric surgery was started in India in the year 1998. In last 12 years there has been a steady increase in the number of surgeries being done all across Asia. Currently more and more young surgeons are interested in pursuing bariatric surgery as a specialization. The importance of a long learning curve for this technically demanding field has been repeatedly stressed upon in the literature all over the world. As on date India lacks a formal postgraduate training program for bariatric surgery. This will be the first fellowship program in India that will offer formal training in laparoscopic bariatric surgery. The comprehensive course capsule would be a balance of operative skills, diagnosis and management of surgical complications, postoperative follow up and research.
    • At the end of the course the surgeon must be able to perform bariatric surgery independently and must be well versed with postoperative follow up and management of complications.
