In order to meet these standards we have diligently selected, screened and trained all of our staff in the art of caring. Furthermore, our program focuses on regularly scheduled continuing education for the staff throughout the year. But our care goes beyond the required by guidelines, it seeks to meet the emotional stress that many of our patients experience with a deep understanding of their physical and emotional needs.
Our commitment to excellence is further strengthened by our superior surgical quality and dedicated weight loss surgery facility. We have been the leader in this area and are committed to advancing and standardizing every area of our field-from surgical technique to short and long term outcomes through innovative follow-up strategies all in a state of the art environment. OCC also continually expands the international medical knowledge in this area through regular, committed research.
Thus our commitment not only is with our patient, we also have a professional obligation to our colleagues seeking to advance their skills and knowledge where we have excelled. Our advanced training facility offers bariatric surgeons from the United States and around the world an exposure to the variability of patient population and the effective use of clinical pathways that will avoid complications, increase effectiveness and result in better patient satisfaction.
Our Mexico weight loss surgeons head up the teaching program at our center and also lead industry workshops, seminars and proctoring programs around the world. We regularly attend and lecture at the American College of Surgeons, American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery and International Federation for the Surgery of Obesity meetings, as well as local and international events.
We are aware that these standards are dynamic and changing and thus, as an organization, we are ready for change and growth as knowledge in our field is modified by new developing research.
