Letter from the president

Dear Visitor,

thank you for visiting the website of the IFSO-European Chapter. We wish you a warm welcome.

Our website is currently undergoing a “refurbishment” and in the near future (thanks to our Communication and Development Committee, led by Dr. Juan Pujol Rafols) we will be able to provide you with much more information like an online platform for bariatric professionals including picture and video gallery and many more interesting and useful topics…
Furthermore we want to provide visitors with information and knowledge about important matters concerning the Chapter, scientific development and technical issues in bariatric and metabolic surgery. Current the content of our website includes:

  • Information about the structure of the Chapter, its organization and its different committees.
  • The list of member organizations with their respective presidents
  • Direct links to both our official Journals: Obesity Surgery and Obesity Facts
  • The Chapter’s bylaws
  • Unreserved minutes of the Chapter’s Executive Committee meetings
  • News about forthcoming IFSO-EC and IFSO events and other endorsed meetings in Europe and the rest of the world with direct links to their website when available
  • Information and photo galleries of past events and congresses

Our website is intended as a resource for all bariatric teams (and not only surgeons!) across Europe including countries that are not yet members of IFSO-EC.
We appreciate input for further development of the website, which should be directed to communication@ifso-ec.com, who will feed them back to our Executive council for consideration. WE sincerely hope for your active participation!

With my very best wishes

Prof. Gerhard Prager
IFSO-European Chapter President 2018-2020
