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.
Now the same level of expertise for which Holy Cross Hospital is known is available at Holy Cross Germantown Hospital, which opened October 2014.
The hallmark of Holy Cross Health's gynecologic surgery 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. Holy Cross Hospital was the first in Montgomery County to use the da Vinci robot in 2008 and that technology is now available at Holy Cross Germantown Hospital. Minimally invasive procedures are an important treatment option for women that result in smaller incisions, faster recovery times, less risk and fewer complications.
In 2014, Holy Cross Health's physician partners performed 1,117 gynecologic and gynecologic oncology inpatient surgeries, more than any other hospital or health system in Maryland.
At Holy Cross Hospital, the dedicated women’s surgical unit, with specially trained nurses, is the first-of-its kind in suburban Maryland. Surgical patients at both Holy Cross Hospital and Holy Cross Germantown Hospital benefit from spacious, private rooms that enhance safety and comfort and boost recovery.
