Integrated treatment - bariatric surgery and quality of life

My dear friends, bariatric greetings to everyone

After coordinating the organizing committee of the Brazilian Congress of Salvador in 2006 and the Scientific Committee of our last meeting in Fortaleza, I will now have the mission to preside over the 20th Brazilian Congress of Bariatric and Metabolic Surgery in Curitiba in May 2019. It will be one more great challenge, especially when we see the growing performance of our main scientific meeting. The management of Caetano Marchesini, with the support of an exceptional executive team, faced a great challenge and established a new paradigm in the management of our Congresses. We have made a lot of progress and we are taking this learning to improve even more in 2019.

We will bring, once again, the techniques, tips and strategies to make our everyday life easier, safer procedures, and our patients happier. Our specialty that has just reached its maturity, continues to renew every year, and cannot stop one day to look forward and seek improvement and excellence.... [keep reading]

My dear friends, bariatric greetings to everyone.

After coordinating the organizing committee of the Brazilian Congress of Salvador in 2006 and the Scientific Committee of our last meeting in Fortaleza, I will now have the mission to preside over the 20th Brazilian Congress of Bariatric and Metabolic Surgery in Curitiba in May 2019. It will be one more great challenge, especially when we see the growing performance of our main scientific meeting. The management of Caetano Marchesini, with the support of an exceptional executive team, faced a great challenge and established a new paradigm in the management of our Congresses. We have made a lot of progress and we are taking this learning to improve even more in 2019.
We will bring, once again, the techniques, tips and strategies to make our everyday life easier, safer procedures, and our patients happier. Our specialty that has just reached its maturity, continues to renew every year, and cannot stop one day to look forward and seek improvement and excellence.

With a lot of work and obstinacy, we look at the same goals that were achieved this year: to offer a rich scientific program, to redeem more and more the fraternal environment of integration and fraternization of the old days of society, and to maintain the financial reserves for the survival of the institution and the programs that implemented.

The team that is leading did not change, we exchanged some positions of the players, reinforcements arrived, but the spirit and the motivation are the same. Fabio Viegas and Antonio Carlos Valezi will take the scientific program forward, Caetano Marchesini will coordinate the Local Organizing Committee with the support of the president of the local chapter Renato Glasmeyer. Finally, the Executive Vice President of SBCBM, Luiz Vicente Berti and I complete the team that is committed to bringing to all of you a new opportunity to enrich the knowledge, and strengthen the bonds of friendship of this great bariatric community.

See you in May, in the Great Republic of Curitiba.

My friends,

We received as one of the last tasks, to help the next president Marcos Leão and the wonderful team that he set up to do the social programming of our XX Brazilian Congress in my hometown of Curitiba.

Together with the president-elect of the Chapter of Paraná, Renato Glasmeyer and local comittee, we will organize the house to welcome you with all the hospitality and affection of the Curitiba people.

There is no doubt that scientific programming will be of excellent quality, which further increases the challenge of preparing for a memorable week.

We are arranging a wonderful surprise for opening cerimony. I advise you to arrive on Tuesday, the end of the day. There are many new features in program so that you enjoy every day of the Congress; from Wednesday to Saturday. We will also reissue our closing confraternization that will take place at Batel Castle. Who participates at our annual meeting in Curitiba in 2007 should remember well what we are talking about.

Curitiba is a city well known for its architecture, parks and squares, gastronomy and organization. We will put at the disposal of all a local agency to offer the best of Curitiba, in a few days.

I am convinced that we will leave in all participants and relatives a desire to return to our land.
A big hug to everyone, 

Caetano Marchesini & Renato Glasmeyer

Dear colleagues

Welcome to the XX Brazilian Congress of Bariatric and Metabolic Surgery of SBCBM
 
Since its first edition, our congress has been the forum for disseminating, discussing and updating the knowledge and experiences of bariatric surgery, as well as celebrating old and new friendships.
With the theme: Integrated treatment - bariatric surgery and quality of life, we want to explore new topics in the surgical treatment of obesity.
Working in collaboration with the associated specialties, the Scientific Committee has developed an attractive program to celebrate our twentieth congress and to continue with the primary objective of our society, which is to promote integrated care for the obese.
The program offers great opportunity for physicians, surgeons, nutritionists, psychologists, nurses, physical educators and physiotherapists to discuss scientific advances in an informal atmosphere with renowned experts from home and abroad.

It will be four days of Congress, certainly beneficial to all participants in the expectation that they can take guidelines to improve the quality of life of our patient.

We hope to meet you in Curitiba in 2019.
