My experience with the Weight Doctors clinic has been really positive from day one.

The interaction with the team was incredible and they guided me through everything from start to finish – from the pre-treatment decision-making process to post-treatment support. I felt like they were always with me on my journey and had my best interests at heart.

Alex and her team were always available to answer my questions and I know that support/help/counselling is always just a click away. The actual treatment at the Düsseldorf clinic went very well – I felt comfortable and at ease and the overall results of my endo sleeve surgery were really positive.

I couldn’t have chosen a more competent, supportive and knowledgeable team to take this step. I finally feel like I have control over something I thought would be a lifelong struggle for me, and both my overall health and confidence have improved significantly over the past year since my first treatment.

I am extremely excited to see how this will pay off in the long run and continue to benefit from the lasting results of my procedure.

I would definitely recommend the team and treatment options at Weight Doctors to those looking to take control of their lives and correct the effects of years of poor dieting habits.

The Weight Doctors group was great for me before, during and after the balloon insertion. Every time I had questions, they were answered with professionalism, care and sensitivity. Thanks to the Weight Doctors and the staff, I have managed to reduce my weight (28kg less).

I was very satisfied with the procedure, the treatment and, above all, the support after the operation and even now (nutrition tips, etc.). I had my gastric balloon inserted in Munich and can recommend this to anyone. I still feel that I am in very good hands.

Gisela, age 65:

There was a problem in my life that had been with me since I was a child: I was overweight. On 9 February 2022, the time had finally come to find a solution to this: the stomach reduction operation was performed by Prof. Dr Hölting. Everything went smoothly. Now some time has passed and I have lost 27 kilos and the problem of the yo-yo effect no longer exists. I no longer need various painkillers for my joint pain (knees etc.). I have found access to intensive sport, which I now really enjoy. My zest for life and my quality of life have increased to an unimaginable extent and I finally feel comfortable in my body and have made peace with it.
to take this step. It’s really worth it ….. !!
The care I received at the clinic, both from the staff and the doctors, was excellent. No questions were left unanswered before the operation, I was always wonderfully looked after and supported, and we are still in contact now.

Dear Ms Zabel,

I would really like to send you and the rest of the team another official “big” thank you email. I’m doing so well, since the last weigh-in I’ve been under the big 100 mark and I’m noticing more and more how my body and head are changing. All the solid deposits are gone and everything is very soft. I can feel my bones and generally everything feels completely different, better and not so swollen. I’m getting better at eating and interpreting signals correctly. Everything is better. I am very glad that I had the procedure with you. Please also send my best regards and many thanks to the professor and the nurses at the clinic!

See you in December for the next check-up! Until then, have a great time and best wishes

I am really completely satisfied! Even today – two years after the operation – they still have an open ear for me! A very competent, friendly team! I felt very well looked after here and would recommend the Weight Doctors at any time!

Antimidus, age 67:

I had the operation in November and now two weeks have passed. My weight has gone down from 113.5 kg to 105.2 kg, which I think is very good. No major problems. No heartburn either.

Highly recommended!!!

It all started with a consultation with Mrs Lahode, where all my questions were clarified and it quickly became clear to me that an endoscopic stomach reduction was the right thing for me. After I had thought about my decision for a few days after the consultation, I called Mrs Lahode and made an appointment for a consultation with the doctor, Prof. Dr Thomas Hölting 👨‍⚕️. He also explained the whole procedure to me again and I was able to ask the questions I had collected up to that point.

I then had the endoscopic stomach reduction on 18 June. I had already decided before the procedure that I would stay in hospital for a day afterwards. I would make this decision again every time. The whole team is really super friendly and always there for you. I really felt that I was in very good hands in all respects and I still feel that way now in the follow-up care.

Since yesterday, 18 June, I feel really fit again. Now it’s time to stick to the plan and watch the progress.

Thank you very much. 😊

Update 05.12.20 / 5 months later

The best decision I’ve ever made. I am now 22kg lighter in total and have really managed to change my entire diet and just eat normally for once. I will now lose another 10kg and then I will have reached my desired weight.

Many thanks. 😀

Theresa, age 73:


Dear Mr Glaeser, dear Weight Doctors team,

My enthusiasm is boundless. I literally felt like I was Professor’s mum.

Everything was explained several times down to the smallest detail. Everyone, but all the staff, sacrificed a lot of time. Even the operator Prof.Dr.Hölting asked several times how I was doing and said goodbye to me personally. It is not a matter of course in this fast-moving age.

I cannot express my gratitude in words.

Best wishes to the two nurses / They asked so often how I was feeling that it was almost annoying.

I left the clinic with very good feelings. I am doing very well, thanks for the careful work of the staff.

I wish you all the best and much success for the future. Thank you again and best regards

I can recommend it without reservation because I was very satisfied with both the detailed consultation and the trusting atmosphere.

I have lost 33.3kg so far. The trend is continuing downwards, a little slower now of course. But that doesn’t bother me.

Otherwise I’m doing well and my GP is supporting me. I don’t need any more blood pressure medication either. I’m definitely looking forward to the rest of my life.
