The Medical News | 2009-12-21

A first-of-its-kind consensus statement by 50 medical experts from around the world has pronounced surgery to be a legitimate and effective treatment for type 2 diabetes, bringing the procedure a significant step closer to wider use and acceptance.

The report, recently published in the Annals of Surgery, illustrates the findings of the first Diabetes Surgery Summit (DSS), an international conference held at the Catholic University of Rome, Italy, where more than 50 scientific and medical experts agreed on a set of guidelines and definitions to guide the use and study of gastrointestinal surgery to treat type 2 diabetes.
