The University Obesity Center Hamburg is networked nationally and internationally and offers the most up-to-date treatment options for obesity and obesity-associated metabolic diseases. The consultation is led by internists / endocrinologists and surgeons together. In addition, Oecotrophologen, dieticians and psychosomatics are the core team of the consultation. In addition, all disciplines available at the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf can be consulted so that a holistic individual treatment can be carried out taking into account your personal illness and risk profile. This means that even patients with high risk potential can be optimally and comprehensively treated.
In the field of obesity surgery, the University Obesity Center has been certified as a center of excellence for obesity and metabolic surgery. All current surgical procedures of the guideline in keyhole surgery (laparoscopy, minimally invasive irrespective of weight) are performed, as well as revision and conversion operations. Studies also offer further treatment options in the conservative, interventional endoscopic and surgical fields.
With regard to complication management, the University Obesity Center benefits from a high level of experience due to its high surgical frequency and the high number of highly specialized departments. In recent years, numerous complications following obesity surgery have been relocated from external facilities to the University Obesity Center. Again, endoscopic procedures play a major role. Partial surgery can be avoided by endoscopic procedures.
