Additional bariatric services
Medical advice - bariatric (Dr. Maciej Pastuszka)
The doctor will assess the patient's general condition, determine the indications for surgical treatment of obesity. He will perform a gastroscopy.

He will qualify the patient for surgical treatment and refer the patient to the center where the operation will be performed.
Nutritional advice - bariatric (Natalia Parulska, MA, Edyta Szymaniak, lic.)
The dietitian will analyze the patient's daily diet on the basis of the food diary kept, take measurements of height and body composition (including body fat) and assess nutritional status. The dietitian may suggest a series of meetings and the development of an individualized menu aimed at reducing weight, improving nutritional status and, in the case of planned surgery, preparing the patient for surgery and planning a proper diet after bariatric surgery.
Before the first visit, it is mandatory for the patient to have a completed Food Diary.
