Bariatric Metabolic Center

 

The team members meet on a weekly basis to discuss all cases, without any discrimination and/or exceptions. The ongoing cooperation between our specialists, doctors, and patients along with providing the best possible treatment plan (i.e. on a global scale) is our main goal at the centre. By achieving this, we are providing our patients with the best and highest quality of service. We believe that obesity may be treated in the long run and with great success. This can be done through the help, cooperation, and teamwork between all our specialists. Having a team of certified and experienced health professionals from different medical fields is essential for treatment. Through the clarification, proper instructions, and gradual steps toward treatment, our team may guide and support the patient towards a successful journey towards optimal weight loss.
