We are the first clinic in Poland to comprehensively deal with the problem of obesity.

The treatment programme developed by our specialists consists of four stages, during which we get to know and analyse the individual needs and conditions of your body.

Firstly – diagnostics.

We search for your weight problems. We conduct detailed examinations and measurements using specialist medical equipment. We try to be as precise as possible in determining the causes of obesity so that the treatment methods selected can bring the desired effects.

Secondly – analysis.

We analyse your mental and physical condition, individual genetic predispositions and the potential for weight loss. We analyse all the factors that could cause your overweight. We take advantage of the knowledge of a number of specialists, including an internist, a dietician and a psychologist.

 

Thirdly – treatment method.

Once we get a better understanding of your body, our specialists will be able to suggest an ideal treatment method for you. While selecting a therapy for you, we take into account not only the results of your examinations, but also your habits and preferences. We are strongly committed to ensuring that the selected method is fully compliant with your possibilities and the weight loss progresses in a manner consistent with the assumptions.

Fourthly – support.

We address the needs of our patients. We provide comprehensive care and support of our specialists at all stages of your treatment.

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.

Stomach resection
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.
