Bariatric Surgeon Training:

Board-Certification

Choosing a qualified bariatric surgeon may seem a bit overwhelming, but knowing what to look for can help make the decision making process easier. When interviewing a potential bariatric surgeon, it is important to ask about the doctor's level of training and experience.

Legally, any medical doctor can perform an operation of any type, even without specialized training or experience in a particular field of medicine. If you are undergoing bariatric surgery, choose a doctor who is board-certified by the American Board of Surgery or the American Osteopathic Board of Surgery.

Board-certification by these boards indicates that the doctor has gone through a specialized training program and has met certain standards in the field of surgery. In addition, choose a doctor that has completed a residency or a fellowship in bariatric surgery. A weekend course is not enough training to become a qualified bariatric surgeon.
