Obesity area

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) and a caloric output calculation using an indirect calorimetry. 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. 

La Clínica está acreditada como Centro de Excelencia por la Federación Internacional para la Cirugía Bariátrica, institución de mayor prestigio mundial en esta área.
