STAFFORD, Va. – Stafford Hospital has been recognized for their advances in minimally invasive surgery.
Here’s more in a press release:
Stafford Hospital was recently designated as a Center of Excellence in Minimally Invasive Gynecology (COEMIG). This means that Stafford Hospital’s GYN Surgery program, under the medical directorship of Dr. Kurian Thott, has demonstrated excellence in minimally invasive GYN surgery. The COEMIG program ensures that the safest, highest quality of care is delivered to minimally invasive gynecology surgery patients worldwide. Stafford Hospital is one of only 5 Virginia hospitals that have been designated a COEMIG facility by the AAGL Surgical Review Board.
Dr. Kurian Thott, a local OB/GYN with advanced training and expertise in minimally invasive laparoscopic procedures, led Stafford Hospital through the designation process. COEMIG’s objective requirements and evaluation processes were developed in conjunction with leading minimally invasive GYN surgeons. A commitment to patient care and success demands that the requirements be comprehensive, research-based and verified through a rigorous site inspection.
“Earning the center of excellence designation signified our ability to consistently deliver the safest, highest quality care to minimally invasive gynecologic surgery patients,” said Cathy Yablonski, Stafford Hospital Administrator. “With Dr. Thott, Stafford Hospital is performing hundreds of minimally invasive GYN surgeries each year, with outstanding results. Participation in this designation has further focused our team on exceeding clinical benchmarks and guidelines.”
The COEMIG program recognizes that the integrated efforts and resources of both the surgeon and the hospital are what provide lasting health benefits for patients. Dr. Thott and Stafford Hospital meet these requirements and are committed to delivering safe, effective, evidence-based care for women requiring minimally invasive GYN surgery.
