We are pleased to invite you to an exclusive dinner and discussion with your peers to gain your perspective in support of our ongoing industry research.

Join us for this Timely Discussion!

Your voice matters! Medtronic is inviting you to be a part of a clinical advisory board dinner to develop strategies for how bariatric surgeons can better convert patients exploring and using weight loss drugs into surgical candidates. The dinner will be held in Boston following Monday’s daytime events at the American College of Surgeons (ACS) Clinical Congress. You will be joined by other leading bariatric surgeons across the country to discuss this topic in detail and develop recommendations for colleagues on the path forward.

The key questions we will be discussing are:

Current Usage Patterns of Pharmaceuticals Among Bariatric Surgery Practices

Segmenting and Profiling the Weight Loss Drug Patient Population

Understanding the Optimal Patient Engagement and Workflow Strategy for Weight Loss Drug Patients in a Busy Surgical Practice

Changes to Payor Policies Covering Drug Therapy and Bariatric Surgery

Developing Educational and Marketing Efforts to Promote the Advantages of Surgery as a Weight Loss Option

Your participation in this clinical advisory board will help Medtronic to better serve the global bariatric surgery community with educational programs, clinical support and technological innovation. Frost & Sullivan will be supporting these board discussions by moderating questions, managing the agenda and reporting out major findings to Medtronic to ensure the most important findings are acted upon. Note that based on your contract with Medtronic you are entitled to a stipend for participation in this advisory board.

Please follow this link to register for this event. After registration, you will also be asked to complete a short survey whose results will be used in the advisory workshop. Thank you for your participation!
