HONORS AND awards
centre of excellence for Obesity Treatments
The Clínica Universidad de Navarra has been accredited as a European leading centre of excellence in its treatment of Obesity, by the European Association for the Study of Obesity (EASO), in 2012 and 2014.
Amongst the principle requirements necessary to be a member of this European network, Doctor Gema Frühbeck, Head of the Metabolic Research Laboratory at the ́Clínica Universidad de Navarra ́, underlines the need for the centre to possess "a specialised Obesity Unit, which is able of diagnosing and treating this disease in accordance with the excellence criteria".
For this, it ́s necessary to have a multidisciplinary medical team, "perfectly coordinated, on top of the specialised resources for studying the body's composition and the diseases associated with obesity".
Additionally, an accredited centre must display "the possibility of offering different therapeutic alternatives to patients, adapted to the specific patho-physiological characteristics" of each individual person treated.
This type of internationally known recognition is only awarded to the centres in which a strong scientific track record has been demonstrated by those who are primarily responsible for the Obesity Unit.
