“Master Surgeon” - Arizona Surgeon Among first in the US to be Awarded New Prestigious Surgical Designation

(September 12, 2017)

MESA, AZ - 12 Sep, 2017 - Dr. Greg J. Marchand MD, a board-certified obstetrician and gynecologist dedicated to reducing invasive surgeries, was among the first in the US to be awarded the new prestigious “Master Surgeon” designation today by the Surgical Review Corporation (SRC).  Dr. Marchand is a practicing surgeon in Arizona’s East Valley, and widely published in minimally invasive surgery.  Dr. Marchand also holds World Records in Minimally invasive surgery including a Guinness World Record for minimally invasive Hysterectomy.

The Surgical Review Corporation, (SRC) is an AAGL (American Associate of Gynecologic Laparoscopists) sponsored, internationally recognized medical accreditation company which manages prestigious designations such as the “Center of Excellence Program.”  They announced today their new designation program of “Master Surgeon.”  Dr. Marchand confirms he was among the first designees in the United States.

"I am excited to be awarded this designation and really hope this sparks a lot of new conversations about the exciting breakthroughs in minimally invasive surgery.”  Dr. Marchand said. “Far too many women are being cut open for procedures that could be performed through minimally invasive means.  I hope the new “Master Surgeon” program inspires Surgeons and Hospitals to pursue the most minimally invasive techniques and the best outcomes for their patients.”



Previously, SRC and AAGL have bestowed the prestigious "Center of Excellence in Minimally Invasive Gynecology" (COEMIG) designation on some of the nation's finest surgical hospitals.  Past recipients have included Kaiser Permanente in California and Penn State Hospital.  The “Master Surgeon” program will now recognize individual surgeons for excellence in their fields.

“We congratulate Dr. Marchand for his accreditation,” says Ashley DuBray, SRC senior director.  “To achieve accreditation, Dr. Marchand invited SRC to complete a rigorous onsite inspection and thorough chart review to illustrate his compliance with the program. Dr. Marchand and his practice exemplify SRC’s commitment to patient safety and care.”

In contrast to typical surgical procedures, such as a traditional hysterectomy in which a woman’s abdomen is cut open, the uterus removed and then the incision site sutured, minimally invasive techniques use thin needles, very small incisions and an endoscope to guide the surgical tools through the smaller openings. Trauma to the body and recovery time are both reduced with such surgical options, and patients often leave the hospital the same day as the procedure.

Dr. Marchand’s technique for hysterectomies is so refined that he holds a 2008 Guinness World Record for removing a 7-pound uterus laparoscopically. He is also extensively published in medical journals for his research and innovation in developing techniques in minimally invasive surgery.
