TMC Bariatric Surgery

In 2015, the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program re-accredited the TMC Bariatric Center for meeting all criteria as a Comprehensive Center according to national quality standards established to deliver safe, high-quality bariatric care.

Patients seeking surgical treatment for severe obesity and its related conditions have a high-quality choice for receiving treatment at a nationally accredited program that meets the highest standards for patient safety and quality of care in Southern Arizona.

The MBSAQIP standards ensure that bariatric surgical patients receive a multidisciplinary program, not just a surgical procedure, which improves patient outcomes and long-term success. As an accredited center, TMC offers preoperative and postoperative care designed specifically for severely obese patients.
