Lowell General now a Center of Excellence in four areas of minimally invasive surgery

For patients facing minimally invasive surgery, Lowell General Hospital is proven to offer excellence.

The Surgical Review Corporation now recognizes Lowell General as a certified Center of Excellence in Minimally Invasive Surgery and Minimally Invasive Urology, adding to our organization’s previous designations in Minimally Invasive Gynecology and Robotic Surgery.

The Center of Excellence program was developed to recognize surgeons and facilities worldwide performing minimally invasive procedures and achieving defined standards for patient safety and care quality.

To earn these designations, surgeons and hospitals must partner together and demonstrate a cross-organizational commitment to the highest standards of minimally invasive surgical care.
