The conservative treatment of obesity consists of a multidisciplinary approach to the patient. Eating habits are analyzed by a nutritional specialist and an individual diet plan is tailored for the patient. Physical activity should be increased. This is supported by an individualized training plan provided by specialized physiotherapists. All medical treatments are analyzed and changed if needed (e.g. anti-diabetic drugs, etc). Follow-up visits with your physician are assuring that the treatment plan is followed or are adapted if indicated. A sustainable weight loss might be achieved with an optimal conservative treatment. However the resulting overall weight loss remains relatively small in most patients.
An optimal conservative treatment is also the ideal preparation for surgical therapy!
