Highest Safety and Quality Standards

Once again, the Center for Bariatric Surgery has been accredited by the American College of Surgeons in conjunction with the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery. The Lifespan Center for Bariatric Surgery has been noted for its long-term successes as well as outstanding care that is designed specifically for each patient. This patient-centric approach has led, once again, to the center achieving dual re-accreditation in 2017 for both adult and adolescent surgery. It was also previously certified in 2015.
