 Our Center of Excellence Accreditation Helps You Succeed

Thanks to our outstanding patient results, record of safety, and extensive patient support, Jacobi’s Bariatric Surgery Center has received accreditation as a Center of Excellence by the Surgical Review Corporation of the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS).

Designation as a Center of Excellence means we pass a rigorous review in which we must live up to a better level of care. It reflects the fact that our complication rate is exceptionally low, that our surgical risks are low, that we offer on-site technical know-how and training in the care of heavy patients – down to providing large beds, supportive toilets, and special wheelchairs – and that we offer a rare degree of patient support, before and long after surgery.

You deserve the best place as you reach your most important personal goal. You deserve the Jacobi Bariatric Surgery Center, a Center of Excellence.

Our Center of Excellence accreditation by the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) reflects exceptional commitment and ability to consistently deliver the safest, highest quality, and successful bariatric surgery care. 
This designation allows our program to accept all insurers.
