Treatment of diabetes
We are the first clinic in Poland to comprehensively deal with the problem of obesity.
The available treatment methods we offer include conservative treatment – dedicated to patients with lower levels of overweight, and operative treatment – recommended in more severe cases.
The surgeries and operations performed by the Obesity Treatment Clinic include:
The medical procedure of intragastric balloon
The method is based on the non-invasive insertion of an intragastric balloon. The expected weight loss is approx. 15-20 kg.
The “by-pass” treatment of obesity
The surgery involves dividing the stomach into a small alimentary pouch and an excretory pouch which is not reached by food. This allows for a significant reduction of weight and may cause the symptoms of diabetes to subside.
It involves reducing the gastric volume to approximately 30%. This leads to the stomach’s limited capacity of food intake and reduction in the sense of hunger due as a result of lowering the secretion of “hunger hormones”.
Fitting a gastric band
The surgery involves fitting an adjustable gastric band onto the upper part of the stomach, leading to a reduction of appetite and a quicker sense of satiety.
