Bariatric surgery program achieves national accreditation

The University of Iowa Health Care bariatric surgery program has been accredited as a Comprehensive Center under the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP), a joint program of the American College of Surgeons and the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery.

The MBSAQIP standards ensure that bariatric surgery patients receive care from a multidisciplinary team of providers, not just a surgical procedure, which improves patient outcomes and long-term success. MBSAQIP-accredited centers focus on tracking outcomes of patients who undergo bariatric surgery and providing continuous quality improvement processes to make sure patients receive the highest level of care.
