Minimally Invasive Gynecology

Trusted Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery at Hoag

Recently the Surgical Review Corporation (SRC), an independent healthcare quality organization and the world-leading administrator of Center of Excellence programs for surgery specialties, designated Hoag Women's Health Institute as a Center of Excellence in Minimally Invasive Gynecology (COEMIG™).

SRC was selected by the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists (AAGL) to administer the COEMIG program. The AAGL is an international authority with over four decades of experience improving the lives of women everywhere. Hoag joins a handful of hospitals in the nation to receive the prestigious designation. This designation elevates the Hoag team to the forefront of safe, high-quality gyn surgery.

Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery is any surgical technique that uses small incisions and results in rapid recovery, decreased blood loss, shorter length of stay in the hospital and less post-operative pain. At Hoag, our gynecologic surgeons perform a variety of minimally invasive surgery options for both benign and malignant cases, with the most advanced being robotic-assisted gyn surgery.

As the highest volume provider of GYN robotic-assisted surgery in California, and the first multidisciplinary program of its kind in Southern California, Hoag’s Gynecologic Robotic-assisted Surgery Program provides a patient-centered, integrated team approach to gynecologic surgical care using evidence-based medicine, progressive technology and innovative treatment options. ​

In addition to board-certified specialists in gynecology, the Hoag robotic team includes sub-specialists in urogynecology, gynecologic oncology and reproductive endocrinology. Together, this multidisciplinary team of physicians provides cohesive streamlined access to a full array of advanced minimally invasive gynecologic surgical care tailored to the individual.
