White Plains Hospital’s bariatric surgical center is accredited as a Comprehensive Center under the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP), a joint program of the American College of Surgeons (ACS) and the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS). White Plains Hospital is one of only two hospitals in Westchester to receive the accreditation.
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. The White Plains Hospital accredited center offers preoperative and postoperative care designed specifically for severely obese patients.
Patients in our comprehensive bariatric surgery program find a team of professionals committed to supporting and helping them achieve their weight-loss and lifestyle change goals. In addition to our surgeons, the team includes a bariatric coordinator to help patients navigate through the pre- and post-surgical appointments, while also providing support and answering questions.
Our patients also work with a nutritionist, physical therapist and other specialists committed to their success. Patients benefit from developing meaningful relationships with others on the same journey in our monthly support groups available to patients following surgery.
