Ohio State is a Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence.
Ohio State's Wexner Medical Center's Bariatric Surgery Program specializes in helping people with severe obesity, a condition that puts people at very high risk for suffering from other chronic and life-threatening medical problems. Ohio State is a Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence®, which means we are recognized for our commitment to the highest levels of care, quality and safety. More weight-loss surgeries are performed at Ohio State than at any other program in central Ohio.
Recognition as a Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence® is an honor bestowed by the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery after an institution has passed a rigorous 10-requirement review of its surgeons, staff, services and facilities. Compliance with these requirements to earn the Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence® designation demonstrates Ohio State’s dedication to offering patients the highest standards of quality care and safety.
