Institute for clinical psychology and psychotherapy
At the Institute for clinical psychology and psychotherapy all patient going for surgery are evaluated and examined to determine whether they fulfill the criteria for bariatric surgery. In the follow-up program, a strong emphasis is put on coping with the changes in lifestyle and behavior. Studies have shown, that patient offered a psychological follow-up, loose weight better and more sustainable. The concept of integrated psychological follow-up was implemented right from the beginning of the obesity centre.
