Dr. Matthias Schlensak
Centre for General Surgery and GI Tract and Endocrine Surgery with a Specialist Centre for Bariatric Surgery
Two surgical disciplines are united in our Center for General Surgery & Visceral Surgery. A team of specialists for each area guarantees you a quality-oriented surgical treatment at the highest level.
In our clinic we have been treating patients with morbid obesity in cooperation with established partners for more than 20 years. For this we combine nutritional counselling, exercise therapy, behavioural therapy and possibly an operation with each other. The Center for General Surgery & Visceral Surgery is home to the surgical section of the Center for Obesity and Metabolic Surgery.
In our clinic, we offer several surgical procedures that can help in different ways to control your overweight. Without your lifelong cooperation, however, the surgery alone can not cure you.
Every 2nd Thursday of every month, we offer a doctor-patient seminar on "Obesity Surgery Options". Here we introduce the different surgical procedures. In addition to the possibilities, Dr. Matthias Schlensak also explains the risks and possible complications of surgical obesity therapy. We will gladly answer your questions afterwards.
Participation is free, registration is not necessary. You will receive a certificate of attendance for presentation, e.g to your health insurance provider.
The appointment in June is cancelled due to a bank holiday.
Start of the event: 7:00 pm
