Creating global networks of healthcare providers dedicated to improving the safety, efficacy and efficiency of patient care.
Surgical Review Corporation (SRC) is an independent, nonprofit organization that develops and administers Center of Excellence and Surgeon of Excellence programs worldwide for surgical specialties. These programs recognize hospitals and surgeons providing exceptional care and dedicated to continuously improving patient safety and success.
The programs that SRC manages are either administered on behalf of professional societies or endorsed by a specialty’s medical association. SRC’s oversight ensures that the programs are free of bias and participant confidentiality is protected.
Bariatric and Metabolic Surgery
The Center of Excellence in Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (COEMBS) and Surgeon of Excellence in Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (SOEMBS) programs reflect the specific needs of obese patients and the unique roles and responsibilities of bariatric and metabolic surgery providers. These programs are available to surgeons, hospitals and ambulatory surgery centers around the world.
The Center of Excellence in Hernia Surgery (COEHS) and Surgeon of Excellence in Hernia Surgery (SOEHS) programs recognize surgeons and hospitals around the world committed to better patient outcomes and improving the quality of hernia repair and abdominal wall reconstruction. The programs are endorsed by the Asian Pacific Hernia Society.
Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery
The Center of Excellence in Minimally Invasive Gynecology (COEMIG) program is designed to expand patient awareness of and access to minimally invasive gynecologic procedures performed by surgeons and hospitals that have demonstrated excellence in these advanced techniques. SRC manages the program worldwide on behalf of the AAGL, the specialty’s leading professional society.
The Center of Excellence in Robotic Surgery (COERS) and Surgeon of Excellence in Robotic Surgery (SOERS) programs recognize surgeons and facilities around the world that perform robotic surgery procedures and achieve defined standards for patient safety and care quality. SRC manages the programs on behalf of the Clinical Robotic Surgery Association (CRSA).
BOLD™ Outcomes Database
SRC developed the BOLD outcomes database to help ensure ongoing compliance with the programs it administers and support quality improvement in patient care. The BOLD database enables broad data collection on a diverse population of patients, which provides the information necessary to evaluate and improve the safety and efficacy of surgical procedures. This data is used to determine which treatments work best for which patients under what circumstances.
In 2007, the organization’s first clinical database was created for the bariatric surgery specialty – today, it is the world’s largest and most comprehensive repository of clinical bariatric surgery information, containing data on more than 500,000 patients. Learn More
