Center of Excellence Designation

University Medical Center of Princeton at Plainsboro was named a Center of Excellence by the American Society for Bariatric Surgery (ASBS), now the American Society for Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery, in October 2005.

UMCPP earned the designation following an extensive application and site review by Surgical Review Corporation, a Raleigh, N.C.-based nonprofit group dedicated to promoting safe and effective bariatric surgery throughout the United States. The review found that UMCPP’s Bariatric Surgery program meets or exceeds national standards for equipment, staffing, training, safety and patient outcomes.
