Bariatric Surgery: Experts Recommend High-Volume Surgeons
So, you’ve finally decided to undergo bariatric surgery. Congratulations! But the decision-making isn’t quite over yet…
From the type of surgery, to the timing of your recovery, to choosing a surgical center, you’ve got to put the time in and do your research. But the most important choice of all is choosing a qualified surgeon with lots of experience.
Bariatric surgery has been established as a safe and effective surgical procedure. That being said, some surgeons are better than others. A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that dangerous surgical complications occur twice as frequently in surgeries performed by less experienced surgical teams compared to highly experienced surgeons.
So what’s the solution? Industry leaders recommend high-volume hospitals/surgeons with board certifications. And don’t forget about what happens after your surgery! Make sure that your surgeon provides comprehensive and accessible aftercare.
