Accreditation means that you have the assurance from an independent certifying body that you will receive quality care in a quality setting focused on quality results. Although bariatric procedures have been performed since 1954, guidelines were not established until 1991. Since then, the number of procedures has increased exponentially but outcomes were inconsistent due to a lack of organized information on patient selection, procedure methods and optimal surgical approaches. With accreditation benchmarks for safety and quality have been established and facilities can now be certified as meeting the highest standard of care.
The Bariatric Center at Chapman is able to assure you that every care has been taken to ensure that your experience will be conducted by the most professional resources available to get the most positive outcome for you.
