Dr. Joel Rose և Dr. Charles Moore, Bariatric Surgeons.

The recent accreditation of the UNC Lenoir Health Care Bariatric Surgery Center as a comprehensive center is a source of pride not only for the hospital but also for Dr. Charles Moore’s Bariatric Surgeon and Dr. Joel Rose.

The appointment is the highest level of accreditation offered by the American Society for Metabolic Bariatric Surgery, Moore said.

“It ensures that there is a level of competence, that there is a level of quality that this program has reached,” he said. “It took a lot of work, it’s an interesting time for us.”

Rose said they are grateful to their staff, the UNC Physicians Network, UNC Lenoir, mentors, their families, and others who have been with them to help them achieve accreditation.

“For me, I value God above all else,” he said.

Colleagues who prefer the term “brothers” have received scholarships and received certified surgeons from the same community, which is the highest level of accreditation for a bariatric surgeon, Moore said.
