Top criteria for choosing a Obesity Surgeon
Some of the most important considerations when choosing a weight loss surgeon include:

Center of Excellence (COE) designation.

COE programs are judged by strict criteria established by the Surgical Review Corporation and the American College of Surgeons. Both accrediting bodies conduct thorough on-site inspections to ensure excellent preoperative and postoperative care.

The surgeon's experience performing gastric banding, gastric bypass, or sleeve gastrectomy procedures.

Experienced gastric banding, gastric bypass, or sleeve gastrectomy surgeons have been shown to report significantly lower bariatric surgery complication rates and shorter operating times. You are entitled to ask about the number of procedures a surgeon has performed and the clinical outcomes data.

Your confidence in the Obesity Surgeon.

You may want to take the opportunity to speak with the surgeon's patients. Patients willing to refer family, friends, and other interested candidates are a good indication of the surgeon's quality.

The surgeon's commitment to your success.

Your gastric banding, gastric bypass, or sleeve gastrectomy surgeon should provide long-term care with follow-up appointments, information, and support resources.

The staff at the surgeon's office.

Your bariatric team will include the surgeon and members of the surgeon's staff, such as the program coordinator and a dietitian. You will work closely with this team before and long after surgery, so it's important for you to meet everyone and talk about how you will work together to help you reach your goals.

Whether the Obesity Surgeon is part of your insurance network.

If you have health insurance, we recommend contacting your insurance provider to see if the surgeon we place you with and the surgery you select are covered by your plan. Choosing a surgeon that is part of your insurance network can help reduce out-of-pocket costs. If you need assistance, we can show you how to work with your insurance provider.
