In this key lecture, Dr. El-Kadre focuses on alcohol use disorder (AUD) and bariatric surgery. Dr. Luciana Janene El-Kadre, specialized in bariatric and metabolic surgery introduces us with a controversial evaluation of the benefits and risks of bariatric surgery, from the perspective of its effects on the brain, and particularly so in the regulation of the limbic reward system. She also shows how these modifications predispose patients to the development of alcoholism and abuse of illicit substances.
