Coumbia Asia Hospital, Ahmedabad

Dear Colleagues:

With a great pleasure I invite you along with my team to the Bariatric Leadership in Surgical Skills (BLiSS) Program; a Masterclass in Gastric Bypass which is going to be held at our Nobesity Center, KD Hospital Ahmedabad on 30th June and 1st July 2017.

Our vision for BLiSS is that it becomes a premiere educational platform in the field of bariatric surgery where practitioners like you come to learn and share new skills.

We are unifying our efforts for this course to provide an excellent small group learning experience. Hence the batch-size is limited to six surgeons who are performing sleeve gastrectomies on their own and are looking forward to acquire intricacies of RYGB to offer this procedure safely and confidently to their patients.

We hope that the carefully designed agenda with an optimum mix of didactic and live surgery sessions will broaden the knowledge and improve the skill sets of attendees.

Additionally, I encourage you to take this opportunity to explore the beautiful city of Ahmedabad!

Look forward to having you with us for BLiSS @ NObesity

With warmest regards

Dr Manish Khaitan
