Accredited Bariatric Surgery Center

In 2012, the American College of Surgeons and the American Society for Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery combined bariatric surgery accreditation programs into a single unified program to achieve one national accreditation standard for all bariatric surgery centers in the United States and Canada. The Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program accredits inpatient and outpatient bariatric surgery centers that have undergone an independent, voluntary and rigorous peer evaluation in accordance with recognized bariatric surgical standards. Bariatric surgery accreditation not only promotes uniform standard benchmarks, but also supports continuous quality improvement. Bariatric surgery accreditation symbolizes an institution’s commitment and accountability for safe, high-quality surgical care.
