To a better you. With the Weight Doctors.
You’ve been thinking about taking this step for a while. But it’s that feeling of being afraid to step on the scales that you’ve realized it’s time to finally do something about it. Weight Doctors is here to help you lose weight effectively, for life.
We’re here to help you regain your self-confidence. After a treatment with the Weight Doctors, our patients are stronger and happier than ever before. Take a look here at the top 12 reasons why we are the right partner for you to achieve the weight loss you’re dreaming of.
Independent and objective advice:
Convince yourself of our expertise
A consultation with the Weight Doctors® – whether in person, by phone or by video – is maximally objective. Why? Because we are only interested in one thing: helping you become the best version of yourself. We are independent and not bound to industry, professional associations or underwriters. Nor do we have to achieve any performance or turnover targets. Our sole focus is to help you achieve your goals with the greatest possible chance of success. In doing so, we draw on the entire portfolio of modern medicine to support patients with excess weight and obesity. From conservative nutritional counselling and drug-induced therapy, to the non-surgical, endoscopic gastric reduction treatment, our Weight Doctors SLEEVE®, and to bariatric surgery, e.g. by means of gastric bypass. With these possibilities we set an industry-wide benchmark.
A treatment plan as individual as you are:
Targeted recommendations based on modern medicine
We’ll start you off on the right track. Why do we say this? It’s simple: many general practitioners, practices and small providers may only know one, or a few, of the many procedures available to support weight loss. Will they be able to offer you the most appropriate solution to support your weight loss needs? Most likely not. Instead, your needs may be made to fit a given template. This is especially frustrating, especially when there may have been a more appropriate method for you. At the Weight Doctors®, you can rest assured that we consider all possible options offered by modern, evidence-based medicine.
The 6-eye principle:
Multi-level authorisation throughout your treatment journey
Mistakes happen. In medicine, such mistakes can have serious consequences. That’s why everything must be done to minimise the risk of errors. At the Weight Doctors®, we apply a 6-eye principle in the run-up to your treatment. What does this mean? before you even come to us for a procedure, at least 3 qualified team members have given their professional approval for your treatment: Consultant, Attending Specialist and Obesity-specialized Anesthetist. Without the okay of each of these three people, no treatment can take place at the Weight Doctors®. Why? It has been proven that much better decisions are made as a team.
Experienced specialists with the Weight Doctors® quality certification:
Absolute competence, verified by lead surgeons
Not all specialists are the same. This is especially true for medical physicians in the field of minimally-invasive gastric reduction treatments. It is not uncommon to see more acute symptoms, side effects and complications where the treating specialist lacks in experience. That is why the Weight Doctors® management team, with over 15 years of experience in the field of modern, minimally-invasive obesity medicine, has developed a 4-stage curriculum, which every one of our Weight Doctors® specialists must pass. Only when this quality-certification is achieved, is a specialist approved to treat our patients. Our Weight Doctors® Lead Surgeons, the most experienced and seasoned of our specialists, cast their vote in this process, ensuring that the Weight Doctors® treatment philosophy and our quality guarantee are confidently met by each of our medical professionals.
Licensed clinic facilities:
Comfortable patient care, audited for excellence
In addition to the qualifications of our specialists, the Weight Doctors® place particular emphasis on the quality of the medical facilities in which your treatment takes place. Our largest obesity clinic in Dortmund boasts a special Intermediate Care Unit, our own medical laboratory, and offers the entire spectrum of minimally invasive obesity medicine. At all other Weight Doctors locations, private clinics hold regional licenses in accordance with §30 GewO with a specific focus on treatments in elective medicine. Specialist clinics of this kind are very different from medical specialist practices. With this licensing the prerequisites for inpatient accommodation of patients are ensured and the applicable regulations for medical care, hygiene standards, medical equipment and medical devices are adhered and regularly audited by the supervisory authorities and public health departments.
A holistic, interdisciplinary approach:
with the help of digitalisation and artificial intelligence
The Weight Doctors® philosophy is based on a modern, multidisciplinary medical approach supported by a team of general and visceral surgeons, gastroenterologists, specialists in internal medicine, anaesthetists, nutritionists, diabetologists and psychologists. Added to this is the full power of digitalisation and artificial intelligence. With our Weight Doctors® patient app, telemetric success prediction supports patient monitoring during follow-up care. And with the highly-innovative Weight Doctors® 3D body scans we can create digital 3D avatars to further understand our patients’ health and document vital physiological parameters during the course of their therapy.
Chief physician principle and super-specialisation:
Genuine competence from the initial examination to the final check-up
In many treatment centers and clinics, you may not find out which doctor will perform your procedure until the day of your procedure. It’s even possible that you are the first patient your physician treats. How involved will the chief physician be in your follow up care? With the Weight Doctors® this is different. Our attending physicians are long-standing specialists and absolute veterans in their field. They also count a career as chief physicians or senior consultants in large hospitals. This ensures that you will always be treated by a chief physician. And this applies to every single doctor-patient contact. In addition: our physicians have specialised in minimally-invasive obesity medicine and regularly perform hundreds of comparable procedures. At the Weight Doctors®, our team are recognized amongst the most renowned practitioners in minimally-invasive obesity medicine in Europe. We call this super-specialisation. Because in medicine, just as in life, practice makes perfect.
Uniform Weight Doctors® quality management:
Standards our patients can rely on.
No matter which Weight Doctors® location you choose for your treatment: they are all united by a uniform treatment philosophy and supported by a central quality management system. With harmonised medical guidelines, procedures and processes, we are accountable to quality. Our goal is to ensure that your treatment is carried out in accordance with the latest scientific findings, on the basis of the latest hygiene regulations for infection prevention and, last but not least, on the foundation of Weight Doctors® best practice – a body of knowledge that is enriched by more than 5,000 treatments every year.
Certified premium products with warranty
Benefit from the services of top research companies
The Weight Doctors® only use premium quality products from certified manufacturers. In addition to typical CE conformity and compliance with the latest Medical Device Regulation (MDR) according to EU Directive 2017/745, we take great care to ensure that the products and materials we use are applied professionally and appropriately. Regular workshops, briefings and training events for our specialist staff ensure that the full potential of our products is realised and that our patients really benefit from them. And if, despite the utmost care of our teams, a product defect should occur unexpectedly, you as a patient benefit from our Weight Doctors® warranty for up to 12 months after your treatment.
Innovation and development is in our DNA:
Weight Doctors® actively supports medical research
By choosing the Weight Doctors® you can be sure that you will benefit from the latest scientific and technological developments in medicine. With a global network, both our top physicians and our team maintain close ties with the leading international research laboratories. We always have our finger on the pulse. With this, we can deliver the latest scientific findings and developments in the field of obesity medicine to our patients first – no matter where they happen in the world. And we’ve already proven this possible:
The Weight Doctors® management team was not only the first team to bring the adjustable Spatz3 gastric balloon to Germany, but also introduced the revolutionary pose® technology – the essential foundations of which are found in the Weight Doctors SLEEVE® today. And the commercial launch of the state-of-the-art technology for non-surgical endoscopic gastric reduction treatment, Apollo OverStitch SX, to support patients in Germany, the Netherlands and South Africa was also supported by the Weight Doctors®. Our entire team will continue to shape the future in this spirit, ensuring that the best methods, most innovative procedures and most compelling technologies reach our patients.
Fair prices without hidden costs:
Because transparency builds trust
In the course of your complementary consultation, we will get to know you, understand your treatment goal, learn about your medical history and share your individual Weight Doctors® treatment recommendation. And if you like, we will share a complete overview of costs. Our treatment costs always include all medical services relating to your treatment. No hidden costs, no surprises. It’s as simple as that. And you can even insure yourself against the unexpected: such as a rare complication following your treatment. The Weight Doctors® offer maximum financial protection for every treatment.
Outstanding patient satisfaction:
Because, at the Weight Doctors®, we do what we love
Have you had a look at the feedback from our many patients? Each patient has their own unique story to tell. But all these stories have one thing in common: they make it clear that we really do what we love. To accompany you to become a better version of yourself. Whether your goal is to feel more comfortable in your own skin, to live pain-free, to be more confident, to feel more resilient at work or in your personal relationships, to wear those jeans again, or to take less medication. Perhaps you even have a bit of all of these goals in mind. No matter what, we take you seriously, listen to you and, just like the many other Weight Doctors® patients we support, we try to guide you back on the path to a better version of you. And the best thing? Our patients see this too. Take a look at our patient reviews and see for yourself.
