All centers have passed the accreditation of influential medical associations.

Obesity Center

The Center is headed by Dr. Matthias Schlensak who has managed to involve in his team many experienced surgeons as well as other specialists like dietitians, personal coaches, and behavioral therapists. It means that the treatment here is based on the interdisciplinary approach which increases the therapy’s effectiveness.

The physicians of St. Martinus-Krankenhaus perform both traditional bariatric surgeries and innovative interventions.

Standard minimally invasive surgeries

Gastric sleeve resection

The removal of the part of the stomach with high concentration of gastrin (“hunger hormone”).

Gastric Bypasses

During the operation only a small part of the stomach continues functioning. The surgeons use a bypass through the middle or back part of the intestine.

Gastric balloon

The balloon is reduced to the stomach size and placed inside it using endoscopic techniques. Such procedure promotes quicker saturation.

Gastric band

Laparoscopic placement of the ring on the upper third of the stomach, which helps to get rid of the feeling of hunger more quickly.

Innovative minimally invasive surgeries


A specialized surgery which reduces the gastric lumen by suturing the stomach. The procedure has some contraindications.


A non-invasive therapeutic method for the patients with type 2 diabetes and obesity, during which a thin liner is inserted into primary and middle sections of the small intestine. The liner prevents interaction of food with these sections and is removed after the therapy.


The program conducts monitoring of the patients with the most complex forms of obesity. It helps to choose different approaches which are divided into phases.

After a long and thorough testing German Diabetes Association (DDG) has specified St. Martinus Krankenhaus Diabetes Center for high achievements in the treatment and care for diabetic patients.

In addition, the Clinic provides training for dietologists from the whole Germany.
