About

Dr. Matthias Schlensak MD is a Specialist for Obesity Surgery, Consultant for General and Visceral Surgery, and Head of the Obesity Centre at St Martinus Hospital in Düsseldorf.

Worldwide, increasingly more people are suffering from obesity with pathological effects.  Dr. Schlensak and his team at the Düsseldorf Obesity Centre aim to increase the quality of life of patients. This can only happen through weight loss, improved nutritional behaviour, and an increased sense of self-worth as well as improved body-awareness and general fitness.

The Düsseldorf Obesity Centre supervises patients in terms of surgery, nutrition counselling, and plastic-aesthetic surgery. This makes it possible for Dr. Schlensak and his team to take a holistic approach to treating patients.

The range of treatment includes gastric band, gastric bypass, gastric sleeve, revision surgery, and gastric plication. Dr. Schlensak also offers his patients the gastric balloon as a non-surgical treatment method.  A gastric balloon is a saline-filled balloon that is introduced into the stomach for six months in the context of a gastroscopy. This balloon fills the stomach, thereby more quickly leading to a feeling of satiety. This treatment is always accompanied by comprehensive nutrition counselling.

Not every treatment is suitable for every patient. Especially in the area of obesity surgery, it is important to know the complete medical history of a patient and consider comorbidities in the decision for treatment. The team of the Düsseldorf Obesity Centre is composed of specialists from various disciplines. The treatment concept follows a holistic approach with nutrition counselling and movement training.

In addition to his surgical practice, Dr. Schlensak is committed to research on metabolic surgery and the improved care of morbidly obese individuals in Germany. Among experts and patients, he is known as an excellent physician.
