Bariatric Surgery Facilities

Our Bariatric Surgery Program is recognized as an American College of Surgeons (ACS) Level One Center of Excellence. As part of this system, our Bariatric Surgery Program is designated as a Level 1a bariatric center and adheres to high standards which ensure the best outcomes and fewest complications possible.

Our accreditation means that our center will engage all levels of obesity and adhere to standards of care for weight loss operations, ages, co-morbid conditions, and re-operations. We will conduct at least 125 weight-loss operations a year, with at least two credentialed and experienced bariatric surgeons each performing at least 50 primary weight-loss operations annually. We will report long-term patient outcomes and have on-site inspections to verify our data, and maintain a dedicated multi-disciplinary bariatric team that include surgeons, nurses, medical consultants, nutritionists, psychologists and exercise physiologists.
