More and more obese patients to see surgery as the last hope of an easier life, the number of interventions in obese people has achieved over the past year with the DAK health, a new high.

"The trend is set to continue in 2013." Especially women, who do not get their weight despite diet and sports in the handle, put themselves under the knife accordingly. From 2008 to 2012, the number of interventions reported to have increased by 64 percent. Expenditure per year has more than doubled in that time - from 2 million in 2008 to 4.6 million euro, 2012. Also, the average cost of a surgical climbed significantly to the statistics: in 2008 the so-called falling cost of interventions was slightly less than 5000 euros in the first half of 2013 with almost 7500 Euros - an increase of 50 percent. As cause the insurance company sees the increasing number of complex interventions - such as when the stomach smaller and not only a gastric band are used as the spokesman said.

Procedures require lifelong follow-up care - Considerably overweight people carry not only a lot of weight around with them, but often have severe concomitant diseases such as diabetes or high blood pressure. Their life expectancy is therefore often lower.
