Crouse Weight Loss Surgery Program Awarded National ‘Center of Excellence’ Accreditation


Bariatric logo2013The Weight Loss Surgery program at Crouse Hospital has been accredited as a Level I  bariatric ‘center of excellence’ facility by the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP) of the American College of Surgeons (ACS).


The MBSAQIP accreditation provides confirmation that a bariatric (weight loss) surgery center has a demonstrated commitment to the highest quality care for its patients.


In addition, accredited bariatric surgery centers provide comprehensive resources to address the entire spectrum of care and needs of bariatric patients before, during and after surgery.


Crouse Hospital started its bariatric surgery program in late 2011. Since that time, general surgeons Jeffrey DeSimone, MD, and Ken Cooper, DO, have performed more than 300 weight loss surgical procedures.
