Morbid obesity has increased dramatically in recent decades. Obesity is closely related to many conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes mellitus and many more. Cancers are also much more common in cases of severe obesity.
Prevention and treatment of obesity is our concern. This often requires intensive medical care as well as sometimes surgical treatment.
In the Berlin Obesity Center, the interdisciplinary treatment of morbid obesity takes place. If necessary, an operation is planned and the corresponding reimbursement is requested. The operative treatment of the pathological obesity is performed in the certified Berlin obesity center - here the professional and structural conditions are established.>
Aftercare and regular follow-up appointments ensure the long-term success of this therapy.
Thanks to the interdisciplinary concept, your cooperation and your will, we can significantly reduce your overweight and reduce or prevent secondary diseases.
