Other healthcare professionals
When you come to MOM for treatment, you’ll meet various obesity specialists. They will begin by drawing up a general overview of your medical condition before suggesting the solution that will provide you with the best risk/benefit outcome from among the available treatments (bypass, sleeve, gastric band, admission to a dietetic clinic, gastric balloon and nutritional assistance). Last but not least, they will help you during the post-operative period.
Obesity specialists at the MOM obesity treatment centre:
|Dr Merheb JAWAD||Dr Diba SIAU|
You will meet one of the Centre’s two endocrinologists during the assessment period and again every three months for the first year following your operation.
|Dr Patrick MALAGANNE|
You’ll meet the psychiatrist during the assessment period and you’ll be able to have a further consultation two months after the operation if you feel the need to do so.
|Dr Michel BARRAL||Dr Jean-Yves BIGEON|
|Dr Philippe BURTIN||Dr Patrick COURANT|
|Dr Constantin HALCHINI||Dr Anne GRANIER|
|Dr Violaine SOUFIANE||Dr Christelle CHARPENTIER|
All the surgery is done under general anaesthetic, as is the gastric fibroscopy done during the assessment period, so it is essential to ensure that there is no contra-indication to anaesthesia. You’ll meet the anaesthetist twice, once before the gastric fibroscopy and again two weeks before surgery if that is the way forward for you.
|Dr Gilles PARELON||Dr Jean-Luc MONNIN|
|Dr Eric MONNIN||Dr Thierry SALOUM|
|Dr Jacques LIAUTARD||Dr Christian CHAPOUTOT|
You’ll have a consultation with the gastroenterologist during the assessment period. He is the specialist who will do the gastric fibroscopy to check that your stomach is healthy.
|Dr Véronique GAUTIER||Dr Corinne MAESTRE|
|Dr Brigitte ADAM||Dr Catherine FROMENT|
You’ll meet the respiratory physician during the assessment period. He will be in charge of respiratory function tests and the detection of sleep apnoea.
|Dr Joseph SCALZI||Dr Ali SAMRI|
You’ll have a consultation with the cardiologist during the assessment period. He will carry out an electrocardiogram (ECG) and a cardiac ultrasound.
|Dr Jean FRAGA|
The radiologist is responsible for the x-ray of your lungs and the abdominal ultrasound carried out during the assessment period.
The nurse coordinator plays a vital role. She acts as the link between the patient and the obesity specialists. She is the one who will contact you a few weeks after the first surgical consultation to answer your questions and organise the medical assessment. She also monitors your file right the way through to its discussion at a meeting attended by a full range of specialists, when a decision is reached on the most appropriate treatment for you.
|Mme Jo DOMINGUEZ||Mme Chloé BERNAUD|
|Mme Cindy CLEMENT||Mme Sophie BARAILLE|
|Melle Estelle HUGUET|
You’ll meet the dietitian for the first time during the assessment period when she will help you prepare for surgery. You’ll see her again often during your stay in the clinic after the operation. To help you in the longer term, she will be available whenever you need her advice, either in a consultation or by phone.
|M. Marc ROUCAUTE|
You’ll meet the physiotherapist during your stay in the clinic. He will help you recover from the after-effects of the surgery.
