American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

Join Bariatric Surgery Targeting Opioid Prescriptions (BSTOP)


To make bariatric surgery even safer, the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP®) has launched its third nationwide metabolic and bariatric surgery quality improvement collaborative. This new initiative is called Bariatric Surgery Targeting Opioid Prescriptions (BSTOP). Opioid use is now an epidemic in the U.S., and all accredited centers are being urged to enroll in BSTOP so they can begin work to save as many lives from opioid dependence among their patients as possible.
