About Board Certification
Board certification sets the gold standard for surgical expertise in the United States. In order to become board certified, your surgeon must pass a series of written and practical tests demonstrating full mastery of the knowledge and techniques required to perform surgery. Not every surgeon is board certified. While they may still be trained medical professionals, this means that they have not passed the stringent battery of formal tests designed to ensure that their patients receive reliably high-quality medical care. Because Dr. John Alexander is certified as a surgeon by the American Board of Surgery, every patient at the Alexander Center for Obesity Surgery can rest assured that he or she is in the hands of a trained and tested professional who offers care meeting the highest standards for safety and efficacy.
