Jacobi Medical Center named number 1 for bariatric surgery

Jacobi Medical Center's Bariatric Surgery Center has been named one of the best in the country by the American Society of Bariatric and Metabolic Surgery.

Jacobi was chosen because it was found to have some of the best weight-loss procedures and surgeons nationwide. The center's weight loss facilities and Dr. Ajay Chopra, chief of laproscopic and bariatric surgery, were honored by the study for their unparalleled commitment and ability to consistently deliver safe and effective care. The center's support group meetings and psychological follow-ups were also acknowledged by the study.

According to the study, as many as 80 percent of patients lose their excess weight thanks to Jacobi's services.
