BARIAlink, created in 2016 by Dr. Bruno Dillemans, is a web-based knowledge base and participation network of bariatric and metabolic surgery specialists from all over the world.
The primary aim of BARIAlink is to share and discuss at a highly professional level the challenges faced by surgeons in complex cases, innovative surgical procedures and new approaches to bariatric surgery in order to raise the level of surgical excellence in this field.
BARIAlink consists of two actively connected pillars:
1. BARIALINK ACADEMY
The academy is a monthly virtual classroom led by a body of 25 active centres joined by a growing community of passive participants. Any interested centre or specialist can attend by signing up and logging in to the online platform. Each session will cover 8 to 10 complex and interesting case studies, submitted by the community and reviewed in advance by a scientific committee.

This information, along with complete recordings of all BARIAlink academy sessions, as well as a comprehensive directory of all participating centres, is instantly available through the BARIAlink Library, from any device, anywhere in the world.
