Our Aim

SOBA aims to provide a forum for all practitioners with an interest in the care of obese patients to communicate as well as exchange information and other relevant data.

As such SOBA will:

  • provide a voice for those working with obese patients, and specialists in the bariatric field, representing their views and interests.
  • continue to encourage the formation of research networks and provide guidelines for anaesthetising obese patients. 
  • disseminate best practice and new knowledge
  • support education and training for all anaesthetists and colleagues
