This year's B.E.S.T. conference will focus on the quest for a personalized approach in bariatric and metabolic surgery. From indications to outcomes, we will be defining the role for primary, revisional procedures, and emerging technologies. The specialized division of bariatric surgery is increasingly challenging, both in the area of expertise and in managing outcomes and complications. Additionally, obesity as a chronic disease provides many areas of both advancement and discussion.
Who Should Attend
Physicians, nurses, trainees and allied health clinicians involved in the treatment of obesity with surgery.
This activity is designed to address the following core and team competencies: Patient Care, Medical Knowledge, Practice-based Learning, and Interprofessional Collaboration.
By attending this activity, participants will be able to:

- Identify the appropriate applications of robotic, computer-assisted technology in bariatric surgery
- Define and clarify the current state of knowledge regarding single anastomosis procedures
- Review and determine the anatomy and physiology of the small bowel and its implications regarding bariatric surgery
- Explain how to evaluate patients with recidivism, and identify select steps for revisional surgery indications and strategies
- Identify strategies for the high-risk patient
- Identify appropriate indicators for bariatric endoscopic interventions
