Two Northside Hospital surgeons have been recognized for their excellence and expertise in using advanced surgical technology.

Dr. Gerald Feuer, robotics innovator and gynecologic oncologist at Northside Hospital and Atlanta Gynecologic Oncology, has performed his 5,000th robotic surgery. 

This remarkable achievement and new milestone reflects the importance of Dr. Feuer’s contributions in treating women’s cancers. 

Since the inception of its robotic surgery program in 2005, Northside teams have performed more than 40,000 robotic surgeries, expanding this expertise to all five campuses. Starting with gynecology and prostate surgeries, the potential for this minimally invasive technology was quickly realized. Northside rapidly expanded its robotic surgery program to other specialties including ENT, thoracic, urology, bariatric, general and colorectal surgery.
Today, surgeons at Northside Hospital Atlanta have performed the most robotic surgeries of any hospital in Georgia -- a distinction held every year since 2010. 

Dr. Feuer and other Northside robotic surgeons work closely with engineers to develop procedures for the robotic surgical system, as well as train surgeons from around the country.

Dr. Michael Hulse of North Georgia OB/GYN Specialists has been named an InterStim™ Center of Excellence by Medtronic. The distinction is awarded to caregivers who have demonstrated particular expertise in the use of the InterStim™ system to treat overactive bladder and non-obstructive urinary retention and chronic fecal incontinence. 

According to the National Association for Continence, more than 33 million Americans live with incontinence, and a great many of them don’t realize that their condition may be treatable. 

Through a highly selective process, Medtronic identifies those practices that are particularly proficient in the placement of the InterStim™ system, reviewing such factors as the number of procedures performed, patient satisfaction, outcomes and more. Dr. Hulse and his colleagues have dedicated themselves to providing the highest level of patient care possible. That their efforts have been recognized is remarkably rewarding.
