Particularly in the field of bariatric surgery, Dr. Susewind finds it extremely important for himself and his patients that the bariatric surgery expert always works according to the state of the art in medical technology and scientific evidence. Minimally invasive surgery demands great experience of the expert in bariatric surgery, while at the same time ensures patients achieve optimal outcomes.

Moreover, as little tissue is damaged as possible and only a small skin incision is made.

Some examples of other special clinical areas of the expert in bariatric surgery Dr. Susewind in Berlin include gastric bypass surgery, the sleeve gastrectomy, the gastric banding surgery, the gastric balloon surgery and what is called gastric plication surgery.

All special areas of clinical emphasis of the expert in bariatric surgery in Berlin are aimed at helping patients reduce their weight and eliminate their obesity. As part of this process, the obesity surgery expert Dr. Susewind, for example, treats special diseases like morbid obesity, pathological obesity and metabolic syndrome. Diabetes (type II diabetes) is another disease that the expert in bariatric surgery treats.
In medicine, pathological obesity is defined as a BMI (body mass index) > 30. Even higher weights are not uncommon for the bariatric surgery expert. When the BMI is markedly higher than 30, the expert in bariatric surgery terms this as grade II or grade III obesity. Specifically extreme obesity (grade III) encompasses the ratio of body height to body weight, which is no longer within a dimension that can be managed by behavioural modification, changing eating habits or more sports. Indeed, the patients often suffer from more health impairments than from their body weight.
In order to successfully and long lastingly reduce weight, affected patients need an individualised and multimodal therapeutic strategy, which entails treating their obesity.
As part of this treatment, the surgical interventions performed by the expert in obesity surgery Dr. Susewind in Berlin play a special role, since minimally invasive surgery, like gastric bypass surgery, represents the first step for an overweight patient to permanently lose weight.
