OBESITY CLINIC

Overweight and obesity are a phenomenon of growing importance in society. In a city like Brussels, 15% of the population is affected by the problem.

In addition to medical complications that inevitably arise when obesity reaches a certain stage, the person concerned has to contend with body image problems and has difficulty integrating into the community.

Management of the obese person is complex and is not just a transaction. This is why the Obesity Clinic team offers personalised care tailored to the patient’s problems.

This team is the nucleus of bariatric surgery at the CHIREC St Anne-St Remi site. Its workload is growing and represents, all procedures combined, around a hundred new cases per year.

THE SPECIFIC APPROACH TAKEN BY THE CITY CLINIC IS AS FOLLOWS:

First contact of the patients with the dietician

Following this initial contact, patients are directed along a suitable clinical route for their weight problem:

  • Based on BMI and age, patients are offered medical treatment or are offered surgery

  • In this case, they follow a specific medical treatment plan leading to

  • A multidisciplinary approach

Post-surgery support: medical, dietary and psychological support, and establishment of a physical activity programme

The Obesity Clinic team uses its skill, availability and experience to ensure that obese patients obtain a solution tailored to their problem in the superb surroundings of the City Clinic
