Hoag Hospital recently received a Center of Excellence in Robotic Surgery accreditation from the Surgical Review Corp., an internationally recognized patient safety organization, according to a news release.

The organization recognized Hoag for its 15,000 robotic surgeries, which were completed at its Newport Beach and Irvine campuses.

“While robotics is still just one tool in a surgeon’s tool box, this advanced technology allows our physicians to consistently deliver the safest, highest-quality care to our robotic surgery patients,” Robert Braithwaite, Hoag president and chief executive, said in a statement. “This minimally invasive option is becoming the standard of care for many procedures in a variety of areas of expertise at Hoag, including cancer, women’s and heart programs, as well as general surgery.”
