SURGERY FOR WEIGHT LOSS/ ADIPOSITAS CENTER VIENNA
Weighing over 45kg above the normal weight is categorized as pathological obesity.
Pathological, because it severely impairs one’s life expectancy. Extreme obesity can be the cause of other illnesses, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, joint problems, heart dysfunctions, gallstones, cancer and psychosocial issues.
The goal of a surgical procedure, together with diet-counseling, acupuncture and supportive psychological measures, is to lower the bodyweight long lastingly.
In our practice, we evaluate together with our patients which procedure is best suited for them individually.
For any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us personally.
