MBSAQIP stands for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program. It is a joint program of the American College of Surgeons (ACS) and the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS).

An MBSAQIP accredited center is a facility that has met rigorous criteria and standards set by the program for bariatric surgery. These standards include requirements for the qualifications and training of surgeons, the use of state-of-the-art equipment and technology, and a commitment to continuous quality improvement.

By choosing an MBSAQIP accredited center for bariatric surgery, patients can be confident that they are receiving care from a facility that has been recognized for its commitment to excellence and quality patient care.

Torrance Bariatric Institute along with R&R Surgical Institute are the only Outpatient MBSAQIP accredited bariatric facility in California.
