Department for Obesity Treatment
The Department for Obesity Treatment offers specially developed effective programs for the treatment of morbid obesity, which is associated with numerous risks to the overall human health, and can also lead to the reduced life expectancy and decreased quality of life. The weight loss programs are provided both on an inpatient and outpatient basis. The standard treatment programs include counseling, an individually selected set of exercises, group psychological therapy, comprehensive diagnostics, and, if necessary, bariatric interventions, such as gastric banding. The patients of the department are treated in close cooperation with colleagues from the specialized Obesity Center Sud-West of the Schwarzwald Baar Hospital.
