The Value of Having Surgery at a MBSAQIP Facility
- There is clinical evidence that the most experienced and best-run bariatric surgery programs have by far the lowest rates of complications.
- The leadership of the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) and American College of Surgeons (ACS) identified the need to recognize the bariatric centers that perform well.
- Both the Surgical Review Corporation’s Bariatric Surgery Centers of Excellence (BSCOE) program and the ASMBS/ACS MBSAQIP program were created to recognize bariatric surgeons and bariatric centers that perform well, making it possible for patients to clearly identify centers of high quality and safety.
