The purpose of the Center of Obesity consists in a multidisciplinar treatment for patients with overweight.
It means that the patiënt will get support from multiple areas and disciplines. Obesity can be the cause of different factors. That is why it must be treated by different areas.
In the Center of Obesity in Bruges, the patiënt will be supported by a team of specialists and paramedics, who will look for the best treatment.
In many cases it is important that not only the surgeon, but also the endocrinologist and the psychologist handle the different cases of the patiënts. To get repayment from the hospital insurance, Belgian patients need to get a green light from the whole team.
