The Bariatric Endoscopy Surgery Trends (BEST) Metabolic Surgery Conference was held earlier this year in Pune, India.  The highly-acclaimed event boasted an international faculty with some of the most accomplished and skilled pioneers in surgical medicine, including Epic Care General Surgeon and bariatric specialist Dr. Ajay Upadhyay.

Over several days, many of the worlds most experienced surgeons shared cutting-edge clinical innovations, trends, and techniques with their surgical colleagues. Sixteen live procedures were performed and broadcasted, including Dr. Upadhyay’s delivery of a live laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy.

While there, Dr. Upadhyay also served as a moderator panel chairperson and was selected to present the keynote session on robotic bariatric surgery and a second video on robotic redo procedures.

According to Dr. Upadhyay, “It was a wonderful opportunity to exchange ideas with some of the foremost providers in our field.” And he added with a chuckle, “The food was really good too!”

As a General Surgeon, Dr. Upadhyay brings decades of expertise to Epic Care’s growing multi-specialty group. His additional areas of practice include Laparoscopic and Robotic Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary Surgery, Bariatric Surgery and Advanced Gastrointestinal Surgery. Moreover, Dr. Upadhyay just completed his 500throbotic surgery — a significant milestone in minimally invasive surgery (MIS) practice and a true testament to his dedication to medicine, and more, his patients.

Congratulations to Dr. Upadhyay for his achievement and for his role in the BEST Metabolic Surgery Conference. For more about Dr. Upadhyay, please click here.
