The Obesity Area at the Clínica has a multidisciplinary team of specialists from a number of departments including nurses and nutritionists.
The Area has leading technology for the body composition evaluation (Bod-Pod [SP]) and a caloric output calculation using an indirect calorimetry [SP]. These tests, which are not available in all health centres, are carried out on a daily basis at the Clínica, for all our patients.
We work alongside our Metabolic Research Laboratory to develop new lines of clinical and basic investigation in order to offer our patients the latest and most effective treatment alternatives. This is led by Dr. Frühbeck, a specialist at the Clínica and the President of the European Association for the Study of Obesity (EASO).
We have a highly specialised team of nurses and nutritionists to work with our patients with obesity problems. Throughout the whole process, we offer follow-up care over the telephone or in person, guaranteeing continued patient care. We aim to give our patients all the necessary information to help them continue to lose the proposed amount of weight.
For over 12 years, the Obesity Area has worked with established programmes, which are being constantly revised and allow us to optimise our patient care.
In their first evaluation, an ideal programme for each patient is established and, in this way, we are able to provide better medical care.
Personalised care for each patient is one of our main concerns, along with the appropriate treatment of diseases.

Complex obese patients: bariatric surgery
One moment, I´d lost the battle, but the next, I was triumphant, after coming to the Clínica, where bariatric surgery was a possibility thanks to the professionals who, humanely and medically, helped me to defeat my obesity”.
