Center of Excellence in Mexico

The Center of Excellence program of the Mexican Association of Surgery for Obesity and Metabolic Diseases (CMCOEM) is a smaller accreditation for hospitals in Mexico that engage in bariatrics.

The Center of Excellence program for the United States is much larger than the similar, and sister program for Mexico. Currently, there are only two hospitals or bariatric facilitates in Mexico which have this certification.
