The Fellowship in Bariatric Surgery stands as an intensive and specialized program crafted to nurture profound expertise in surgically addressing obesity and its associated metabolic syndromes. Over the course of 12 months, this fellowship offers an exhaustive curriculum integrating robust clinical exposure, advanced surgical skill honing, and ample research opportunities. Participants undergo a transformative journey, mastering a spectrum of bariatric surgical techniques, from laparoscopic procedures to robotic-assisted interventions, essential for procedures like Roux-en-Y gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy. 

Furthermore, fellows delve into the nuances of metabolic surgery, exploring the intersection between surgical interventions and the management of metabolic disorders such as type 2 diabetes mellitus. Emphasizing a multidisciplinary approach, the program fosters collaboration with nutritionists, endocrinologists, psychologists, and other specialists to ensure holistic patient care. Didactic components, comprising lectures, seminars, and case discussions, offer a comprehensive understanding of the anatomical, physiological, and psychosocial aspects pertinent to bariatric surgery.

Research forms a cornerstone of the fellowship, with fellows undertaking supervised projects aimed at advancing clinical outcomes, pioneering surgical innovations, or contributing to the fundamental understanding of obesity and metabolic disorders. The program also inculcates a deep sense of patient-centric care, from meticulous preoperative evaluations to vigilant postoperative monitoring and long-term management. Fellows undergo thorough evaluations, encompassing direct faculty observations, formal assessments, and comprehensive reviews of research and patient care, ensuring a well-rounded training experience.

Eligible applicants, are encouraged to demonstrate their commitment to bariatric surgery through a rigorous application process involving CV submission, personal statements, letters of recommendation, and interviews. In return, fellows benefit from practical training with cutting-edge surgical equipment, mentorship from seasoned bariatric surgeons, and a supportive environment conducive to professional growth. Ultimately, graduates emerge as adept and compassionate surgeons, poised to lead advancements in bariatric surgery, improve patient outcomes, and drive innovation in the management of obesity and metabolic disorders.

  1. Joint Anatomy and Physiology
    Joint Anatomy and Physiology is a specialized training program that focuses on gaining an in-depth understanding of the structure and function of the human joints, particularly major joints like the hip, knee, and shoulder. This specialized training is vital for healthcare professionals, often orthopedic surgeons and physical therapists, who aim to excel in diagnosing and treating joint-related issues. During this fellowship, participants delve into the intricate details of joint anatomy, including the bones, ligaments, tendons, and surrounding structures that make up each joint. They also explore the biomechanics of joint movement, load-bearing, and the unique characteristics of different joints in the human body.
  2. Arthroplasty Techniques
    Arthroplasty Techniques is a specialized training program that focuses on mastering the surgical procedures involved in joint replacement, particularly major joints such as the hip, knee, and shoulder. This specialized training is undertaken by healthcare professionals, often orthopedic surgeons, who seek to become experts in restoring joint function and alleviating pain through arthroplastic interventions. During this fellowship, participants learn and refine advanced techniques for joint replacement surgeries. This includes in-depth knowledge of the anatomy and biomechanics of the joints being treated, as well as the skills and procedures necessary for performing arthroplasty, which involves the removal and replacement of damaged joint components with prosthetic implants. 
  3. Patient Evaluation
    Patient Evaluation is a specialized training program that focuses on developing the skills and knowledge required to assess and diagnose patients effectively. This training is typically undertaken by healthcare professionals, such as physicians, nurses, and medical specialists, to become proficient in patient examination and history-taking. The primary goal of a Patient Evaluation fellowship is to equip healthcare professionals with the ability to assess patients thoroughly and determine the most appropriate diagnostic and treatment pathways. Proficiency in patient evaluation is essential for providing high-quality and patient-centered care, ultimately leading to improved healthcare outcomes and patient satisfaction.
  4. Arthroscopic Procedures 
    Arthroscopic Procedures is a specialized training program that focuses on mastering arthroscopic techniques used in diagnosing and treating joint-related issues, particularly in major joints like the hip, knee, and shoulder. This specialized training is often undertaken by healthcare professionals, such as orthopedic surgeons and sports medicine specialists, to become proficient in minimally invasive procedures. During this fellowship, participants learn advanced skills in using arthroscopic instruments and equipment to access and visualize the interior of joints. They gain expertise in techniques for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes, enabling them to perform procedures like joint debridement, repair of ligaments or cartilage, and removal of loose bodies within the joint.
  5. Rehabilitation and Postoperative
    Rehabilitation and Postoperative Care is a specialized training program that focuses on the comprehensive management of patients following surgical interventions. Healthcare professionals, such as physical therapists, occupational therapists, and orthopedic surgeons, often pursue this fellowship to develop expertise in guiding patients through the recovery process. During this fellowship, participants learn advanced skills related to postoperative care and rehabilitation, including creating tailored rehabilitation plans, managing pain, addressing complications, and optimizing patient recovery. They also gain insights into providing emotional and psychological support to patients during their post-surgery journey.
