The Surgical Review Corporation named Saint Joseph East, Lexington, part of KentuckyOne Health, a Center of Excellence in Robotic Surgery. Saint Joseph East is the only hospital in central Kentucky to receive this designation, which is based on patient volume, outcomes and the types of procedures offered.

Robotic surgery offers a minimally-invasive option for patients facing an open procedure, helping give surgeons magnified, high-definition vision. “It is an honor to be the only hospital in the region to receive this designation from the Surgical Review Corporation,” said Saint Joseph East’s Mike Guiler, MD. “Robotic surgery helps our hospital offer patients the most advanced technology, leading to shorter hospital stays, faster recoveries and minimal scarring.”

The Center of Excellence in Robotic Surgery (COERS) program recognizes surgeons and facilities worldwide who achieve defined standards for patient safety and care quality in performing robotic surgery.
