Since 2005 we have been performing quality assurance for surgical therapy of obesity, in close collaboration with our scientific associations. Important target parameters are, among others, the range of weight loss and the influence on comorbidities in the long-term process. We report on these by means of 8,716 patient processes from 54 German clinics.
