Il Obesity Center
According to the national and international guidelines, Humanitas has created a multidisciplinary group for obesity: it addresses the preoperative period, the convalescence and the follow-up. After the first visit, suitable obese patients get evaluated by the anesthesiologist and, if necessary, by other specialists (cardiologist, pulmonologist, endoscopy specialist).
In order to enroll in this programme at the Obesity Center at Rozzano (Milan), it is necessary to get a multidisciplinary visit (the first visit): it includes a surgical consultation, a diet-oriented nutritional visit and a counseling session. After these visits, the multidisciplinary team gathers, shares the relevant information, and eventually declares the patient fit for bariatric surgery.
