Guthrie Weight Loss Center receives national accreditation


(PRESS RELEASE)-The Guthrie Weight Loss Center is receiving national accreditation for their weight loss programs efforts.

The Guthrie Weight Loss Center has received three-year reaccreditation from the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP).

This reaccreditation recognizes Guthrie’s ability to offer patients seeking surgical treatment for severe obesity and its related conditions the highest standards for patient safety and quality of care.

Dr. Mustafa Aman, Guthrie Director, Bariatric Surgery said, “We are excited to once again celebrate this achievement and look forward to continuing our success at the weight loss center. We offer our patients long-term solutions to their weight loss goals and aim to support them both before and after surgery to ensure the best patient outcomes and sustainable weight loss.”

In the United States, 93.3 million people suffer from obesity, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the numbers continue to increase. Obesity increases the risks of morbidity and mortality because of the diseases and conditions that are commonly associated with it, such as type II diabetes, hypertension, and cardiovascular disease, among other health risks.
