IFSO-European Chapter Executive Council deeply regrets the death of our Honorary President Professor Nicola Scopinaro, who has left a great void in the world of bariatric and metabolic surgery.
A great surgeon, devoted worker and greater person. An irreparable loss.

Following his own words:
“Despite the tragedies I have experienced, I remain very satisfied with everything I have done in my life, and I am very grateful. I have travelled all over the world and have done everything I have wanted to do.”

The effects of his leaving will always be deeply felt by those of us who had the honor and pleasure of attend his lectures but we will keep his teachings forever.

Rest in peace, dear Professor.

IFSO-EC Executive Council
