  Welcome to the 2nd Diabetes Surgery Summit

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

On behalf of the organizing committee, it is our pleasure to announce the 2nd Diabetes Surgery Summit (DSS-II), one of the most important scientific events of 2015.

Despite evidence that bariatric/metabolic surgery can achieve excellent control of type 2 diabetes and reduce cardiometabolic risk, this potentially life-saving approach has not yet been properly integrated in the treatment algorithm of type 2 diabetes.

The 2nd Diabetes Surgery Summit (DSS-II) is a consensus conference aimed at the development of clinical guidelines for surgical treatment of type 2 diabetes. The DSS-II will be held jointly with the 3rd World Congress on Interventional Therapies of Type 2 Diabetes (London, UK; Sept 28-30, 2015)

The DSS-II is organised in collaboration with the American Diabetes Association (ADA), the European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD), Diabetes UK (DUK) and the Chinese Diabetes Society (CDS). A multidisciplinary group of experts in the field of endocrinology, metabolic surgery, nutrition, cardiology and official representatives of leading diabetes organisations will develop guidelines and recommendations. A draft with proposed guidelines will be presented during dedicated plenary sessions of the World Congress in London and discussed by other thought leaders and by the audience.

We cordially invite you to attend the joint DSS-II and 3rd World Congress and actively participate in a seminal event that will lay the foundation of modern, multimodality care of diabetes.
