"The renewal of the Center of Excellence in Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery

…accreditation granted by SRC is a confirmation of the commitment from our multidisciplinary team in the treatment of obesity and a reflection of the quality of the services provided during our 16 years of work in the specialty (started in 2000). Our history has always been guided by our ethical commitment to quality of patient care, always seeking technical and scientific improvement with the vision of becoming a reference center in the treatment of obesity. This recognition was obtained in 2012 with the Center of Excellence in Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery accreditation and was renewed in 2015 through rigorous inspections of our facility. This most recent inspection evaluated the technical capacity of our professionals, the quality of the services provided, the results obtained and the physical structure of the hospital and practice. This certification is very much an honor for us and reinforces our commitment to always seek improvements associated with qualified assistance, teaching and research. This reflects the mission of the Center for Obesity and Metabolic Syndrome of PUCRS to maintain the highest quality standards.”
-Dr. Rafael Ramos, Brazil
