Excess body weight and its associated health problems

Around 65,000 people living in the Canton of Lucerne and the neighbouring cantons are overweight. Despite thorough research, treating this chronic, neuroendocrine disease still poses a challenge to modern medicine – because almost all the body’s organs are affected by excess body weight.

We ensure close, coordinated and interdisciplinary collaboration between medical specialists, therapists and your family doctor

St. Anna im Bahnhof opened the Metabolic Centre in February 2012 and it is the first port of call for people with weight problems. To create a personal programme for each patient, it is first necessary to carry out a comprehensive examination. Other medical specialists will be involved in this diagnostic process in accordance with the patient’s medical problems or requirements.

Excess body weight cannot be cured, but it can be managed

The competent and dedicated interdisciplinary team at the Metabolic Centre are available to assist and support overweight patients and their family doctors.

We would be happy to advise you on the best course of action and look forward to hearing from you.
