About The Center for Weight Loss Surgery
The Center for Weight Loss Surgery at Middlesex Hospital in Middletown, Connecticut, is an accredited 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). This ensures that bariatric surgical patients receive a multidisciplinary program, not just a surgical procedure, which improves patient outcomes and long-term success. The accredited center offers preoperative and postoperative care designed specifically for their severely obese patients.
To earn the MBSAQIP designation, Middlesex Hospital Center for Weight Loss Surgery met essential criteria for staffing, training and facility infrastructure and protocols for care, ensuring its ability to support patients with severe obesity. The Center also participates in a national data registry that yields semiannual reports on the quality of its processes and outcomes, identifying opportunities for continuous quality improvement.
The accreditation recognizes not only the surgical excellence of Medical Director and surgeon Jonathan Aranow M.D., but also the nursing and professional excellence of staff members who are involved in the care of bariatric surgery patients.
The Center for Weight Loss Surgery at Middlesex Hospital is far more than a place to receive the operation – it is a comprehensive medical, educational and supportive program.
