ASMBS Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence®

A special designation — with special benefits for you.

Based on our track record of favorable outcomes, the Borgess Bariatrics was named an American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS)* Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence® in 2009. The Bariatric Center was the first — and is still the only — facility in Southwest Michigan to earn this designation. We are proud of this fact and have maintained the designation by continuing our commitment to excellence.

Recognition and ongoing commitment.

As the number of bariatric surgeries grew from 16,000 performend in 1992 to 170,000 performed in 2005, clinical evidence demonstrated that the most experienced and best-run bariatric surgery programs have by far the lowest rate of complications. The Center for Excellence designation was created in 2004 to encourage these programs. To earn the Center of Excellence designation, the Borgess Bariatric Surgery Program passed an extensive review all aspects of the program’s surgical processes and health outcomes. As part of the designation, we agree to continue to share information on clinical pathways, protocols and outcomes data.

Experience excellence for yourself.

You can take the first step toward a life-changing experience by attending one of our free Bariatric Seminars. Or register today by calling (269) 226.6863.
