“I have enjoyed working in the bariatric surgery field

…since the late 90s, and our group was a pioneer in performing bariatric surgery in Southern Brazil. Our practice has always sought to be fully informed and up to date with the latest surgery techniques and certifications and has worked to create an optimally qualified staff. We performed one of the first gastric bypass surgery by laparoscopy in May 2001. In 2011, we began SRC’s Center of Excellence in Bariatric Surgery, and at that time, the hospital started an internal qualification process to become a Center of Excellence.”

“Achieving the COEMIG designation validates our dedication

…to caring for our patients with advanced practices, and it reinforces our role as a national and international leader in innovative healthcare for women. The designation process compelled us to formalize our clinical pathways and provide ongoing surgeon and staff education, which continues to enhance our drive toward optimal clinical outcomes. Our surgeons who are not yet designated recognize the value and are actively pursuing it. Through the COEMIG program, we are leading minimally invasive gynecological surgery at our hospital to new levels of excellence.”
