How to Choose the Best Bariatric Surgeon, Chicago Physicians Weigh In

Chicago bariatric surgeons detail key credentials and other factors to consider before choosing a weight loss surgeon.

The bariatric surgeons at Suburban Surgical Care Specialists/Kane Center highlight key factors to look for when researching weight loss surgeons.

Chicago, IL — When it comes to bariatric surgery, the doctors at Suburban Surgical Care Specialists/Kane Center explain that finding a highly qualified surgeon is essential for a patient’s safety and long-term success. Since weight loss surgery can permanently change a person’s body and lifestyle, the Chicago bariatric surgeons advise those interested in a procedure — whether gastric sleeve, gastric bypass, duodenal switch, or another technique — to thoroughly research their options. To find the best possible surgeon, the SSCS team recommends considering a bariatric surgeon’s credentials, reputation, and trustworthiness.

In addition to these cornerstone criteria, the SSCS physicians note that individuals should learn where a bariatric surgeon performs their procedures. The team explains that operating in an accredited surgical facility is another key component in ensuring a patient’s safety. By doing so, they say that a patient can trust that their physician is upholding high safety and care standards, as established by the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP).
