Center of Excellence in Minimally Invasive Gynecology
If given the choice, nearly anyone would choose a minimally-invasive option for surgery. With advances in technology and training for physicians, more procedures than ever before are now being performed with smaller incisions, less blood loss and less disturbance of surrounding tissues. The benefits are clear – diminished pain, faster recovery and shorter hospital stays.
Now, women in the Upstate have another reason to choose minimally invasive gynecologic surgeries – ST. FRANCIS eastside has been designated as an AAGL Center of Excellence in Minimally Invasive Gynecology (COEMIG), by the Surgical Review Corporation.
This program recognizes surgeons and facilities that demonstrate an unparalleled ability to consistently deliver safe, effective, evidence-based care. The program is structured to help minimally invasive gynecologic surgery providers continuously improve care quality and patient safety.
“Earning the center of excellence designation signifies our ability to consistently deliver the safest, highest-quality care to women having minimally invasive gynecologic surgery,” says Bon Secours Medical Group physician and COEMIG Designee, Everett Fuller, MD.
COEMIG designation requires an extensive review of a hospital’s surgical facilities, operations, procedures and outcomes as well as its staff’s education, training and continuous quality improvement efforts.
