Bariatric surgery has emerged as a highly effective treatment for obesity and is increasingly recognized to have benefits for glycemic management in patients with pre-existing type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Understanding the efficacy and physiological effects of bariatric surgery on metabolism will push forward a novel approach to interventional procedures for diabetes treatment. In this key lecture, Dr. Galvao Neto presents the first result of a novel endoscopic approach to type 2 diabetes, namely duodenal mucosal resurfacing.
