When you treat obesity, you effectively treat several risk factors for an early death
Surgical treatment of obesity results in significant improvement of quality of life in 98% of patients. Among the benefits associated with obesity surgery, loss of weight, of course, will be the most immediate. However, the first benefit is not necessarily the greatest. The reduction in mortality and morbidity from obesity associated conditions offers the possibility for a longer and healthier life.
The surgical teams in the top Portuguese private hospitals have extensive experience in all surgical procedures currently recommended for the treatment of obesity, including minimally invasive surgery by laparoscopy and robot-assisted surgery.
Specialties involved in the multifaceted treatment of obesity include: family medicine, nutrition, clinical psychology, internal medicine, endocrinology, gastroenterology, general and bariatric surgery, anesthesiology, reconstructive and aesthetic plastic surgery.
Other specialties may also collaborate in the treatment of obesity, in particular: cardiology, physical medicine and rehabilitation, orthopedics, psychiatry, radiology, the clinical laboratory and the ICU.
