Weight Loss Surgery
Bariatric (weight loss) surgery is defined as any gastric (stomach-related) procedure with the purpose of reducing food intake and/or calorie absorption in order to treat morbid obesity. Bariatric surgery is a serious procedure that requires a strong personal commitment, a skilled surgeon and a solid support team.
Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center has received full accreditation as a comprehensive bariatric facility by the new Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP).
MBSAQIP accreditation signifies that Our Lady of the Lake has demonstrated a commitment to delivering the highest quality of care for bariatric surgery patients. To earn accreditation, the hospital met the essential criteria that ensure its ability to support a safe bariatric surgical care program and measure up to the institutional performance requirements outlined by the accreditation standards.
The MBSAQIP is a joint program of the American College of Surgeons and the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery. The program accredits inpatient and outpatient bariatric surgery centers that have undergone an independent and rigorous peer evaluation in accordance with nationally recognized bariatric surgical standards.
