Our center's excellence has been recognized by the American College of Surgeons (ACS) and he American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) throught MBSAQIP accreditation. This distinction is earned by inpatient and outpatient bariatric surgery centers in the United States and Canada that have undergone an independent, voluntary, and rigorous peer evaluation in accordance with nationally recognied bariatric surgical standards.
Bariatric surgery accreditation not only promotes uniform standards benchmarks, but also supports continuous quality improvment.
In the United States, more than 11 million people suffer from severe obesity and estimated 93 million people are obese. The comorbidities associated with obesity range from diabetes and heart disease to certain types of cancers. Bariatric surgial procedures have been shown to reduce obesity, improve mortality, and decrease the health risk from chronic disease such as cardiomyopathy and diabetes. For these reasons, the MBSAQIP will recognize those facilities that implement defined standards of care, docuement their outcomes, and particiapte in regular reviews to evaluate their bariatric surgical programs.
