Medical Center Recognized for Excellence in Bariatric Surgery

The Mount Sinai Medical Center has been named a Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence by the American Society for Bariatric Surgery (ASBS).//

This new designation recognizes the safety, efficiency and overall positive surgical results of the bariatric surgical team at Mount Sinai. The hospital has satisfactorily met the high standards set forth by the ASBS to be acknowledged for its excellence in bariatric surgery.

Obesity is a serious epidemic in America. Over two thirds of Americans are overweight, a frightening number that continues to rise each year. Faced with this issue, the leadership of the American Society for Bariatric Surgery identified the need to recognize surgical programs, like Mount Sinai’s Program for Surgical Weight Loss, that demonstrate a track record of favorable outcomes in bariatric surgery.

The Chief of Bariatric Surgery at The Mount Sinai Medical Center, Dr. Daniel M. Herron, MD, FACS couldn’t be prouder of the new designation for the hospital and the hard work of his entire surgical team. “The Mount Sinai Medical Center staff has been providing an extraordinary level of care to weight loss surgery patients since 1999. It’s very satisfying to see this officially recognized at the national level by the ASBS,” said Herron.

Dr. Herron has been performing laparoscopic bariatric surgery since joining the Mount Sinai faculty in 1999. Since that time he has performed over 700 laparoscopic bariatric procedures. Dr. Herron also serves as Director of the Laparoscopic Surgery Fellowship training program at Mount Sinai School of Medicine, where he is an Associate Professor of Surgery.

The ASBS Centers of Excellence Program was created to recognize bariatric surgery centers that perform well. To earn a Center of Excellence designation, Mount Sinai underwent a series of site inspections during which all aspects of the program’s surgical processes were closely examined and data on health outcome s was collected. Surgical Review Corporation (SRC), an organization dedicated to pursuing surgical excellence, formulates and establishes the rigorous standards with which Dr. Herron’s team at Mount Sinai and other Centers of Excellence must comply, thoroughly inspects and evaluates each candidate for designation, and upon review recommends approval for designation for those physicians and facilities whose practices and outcomes meet the stringent demands set forth by SRC and ASBS.
