OBESITY CENTER (OBESITY AND METABOLIC SURGERY)

The scientific world points out that obesity is the longest pandemic of this century. Obesity implies excessive increase in amount of fat in body and the increase in fat mass paves the way for many life threatening chronic or acute diseases from Type 2 diabetes to hypertension, from cardiovascular diseases to even cancer.  Those diseases that mostly develop with obesity are called metabolic diseases. Researches on this subject show that focusing solely on excessive calorie intake for treatment of obesity and metabolic diseases is not a quite correct approach. Recently, a versatile evaluation in which genetic, environmental and psychological factors that may lead to obesity are also considered is given importance. Our specialists who closely follow all developments regarding treatment of obesity and lead international researches in this field prepare treatment plans in the light of these current approaches.
 
At American Hospital Obesity Center (Bariatric Surgery), our specialists aim to help our patients get rid of excessive fat masses permanently, have a healthy body mass index and maintain a healthy life. To that end, a treatment program is created for each patient presenting to our center with a multidisciplinary approach with the participation of endocrinologists, psychiatrics, dieticians and specialists from other related disciplines.
