  • Less post-operative pain and faster recovery
  • Less risk of infection
  • Decreased blood loss
  • Less scarring
  • Quicker return to normal activities

“Accreditation by the SRC demonstrates exceptional minimally invasive gynecologic surgical care,” said Nadim Bou Zgheib, MD, gynecologic oncologist at the Edwards Comprehensive Cancer Center at CHH and assistant professor in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine. “We are dedicated to continually improving healthcare quality and patient safety and this designation confirms it.” 

The goal of the COEMIG program is to improve patient safety and satisfaction, increase access to minimally invasive gynecologic procedures and provide data-driven results.
