Holy Cross Health’s Leading Edge in Gynecologic Surgery
Holy Cross Health is a regional leader in the treatment of medical problems requiring gynecologic surgery. Our gynecology experts, including gynecologic oncologists, urologic gynecologists and gynecologic surgeons, are innovators in gynecologic surgical procedures—with prestigious awards and special designations recognizing their excellence.
- The Holy Cross Hospital Gynecologic Surgery Program is designated as a Center of Excellence in Minimally Invasive Gynecology (COEMIG) by the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists and Surgical Review Corporation (SRC).
- In 2014, U.S. News & World Report ranked Holy Cross Hospital fourth out of 70 hospitals in the Washington, D.C., metro area and recognized the hospital's high performance in gynecology services.
- Holy Cross Hospital in Silver Spring is a teaching hospital hosting physician training fellowships in minimally invasive surgery in conjunction with George Washington University and Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.
The hallmark of the program is the team’s expertise in the use of newer, minimally invasive gynecologic surgery procedures, including gynecology robotic surgery using the da Vinci surgical robot. Minimally invasive procedures are an important treatment option for women that result in smaller incisions, faster recovery times, less risk and fewer complications.
In 2013, Holy Cross Hospital's physician partners performed 1,125 gynecologic and gynecologic oncology inpatient surgeries, more than any other hospital in Maryland. The hospital’s dedicated women’s surgical unit, with specially trained nurses and private rooms, is the first-of-its kind in suburban Maryland.
A highly skilled team of gynecologic surgeons will provide services at Holy Cross Germantown Hospital (opening in October 2014). The Holy Cross Germantown Hospital program will include a range of open and minimally invasive procedures for women with gynecologic and urologic problems that require surgery. Surgical patients at the hospital benefit from private rooms that enhance safety and comfort and boost recovery.
