Minimally Invasive Gynecology Surgery

Surgery—Minimally Invasive Gynecology

coemig_linkSilver Cross Hospital and select physicians on staff have one of the few programs in the nation to be designated as a Center of Excellence in Minimally Invasive Gynecology (COEMIG) by the AAGL, the leading association of minimally invasive gynecologic surgeons worldwide, and Surgical Review Corporation.  

Achieving COEMIG designation places Silver Cross at the forefront of minimally invasive gynecologic surgical care.   Women’s services have grown more advanced and specialized and the accreditation demonstrates the Hospital and physicians’ commitment to excellence and patient-centered care.  Compared to traditional surgery, patients who undergo minimally invasive gynecologic surgery experience less pain, reduced blood loss, fewer complications, shorter hospital stays and a faster recovery, so they can return to normal activities sooner.

We offer expert specialized care for women who face surgical treatment for:

  • Hysterectomies
  • Uterine Fibroids
  • Endometriosis
  • Ovarian Cysts
  • Prolapse
  • and Other Gynecologic Conditions

Silver Cross also has a DaVinci robot, which is the most advanced robotic-assisted technology available today to perform gynecologic surgical procedures. 

Physicians with COEMIG Designation

COEMIG-accredited centers comply with requirements designated by the AAGL’s Standards Committee, and are subject to a comprehensive and thorough inspection by a review committee. Approved facilities must adhere to requirements including the following: an institutional commitment to excellence in minimally invasive gynecologic surgery; significant and ongoing surgical experience performing minimally invasive gynecologic procedures; an active Physician Program Director who is an obstetrician/gynecologist and; a full complement of consultative staff and services; a designated surgical team and support staff and continuous quality assessment. To verify compliance, an accredited facility is formally reevaluated every three years.
