Center of Excellence

Surgical Review Corporation (SRC)

Center Of Excellence - COE

GEM Hospital & Research Centre is proudly the first only International Centre of Excellence in South India. This brings them in par along with many other center of excellence among the world. This also makes Dr. Praveen Raj, the only surgeon of Excellence in this part of the world.


The Surgical Review Corporation (SRC) is an independent, nonprofit organization that advances the safety, efficacy and efficiency of bariatric and metabolic surgery worldwide. The Center of Excellence (COE) designation is awarded simultaneously to individual surgeons and the facility in which they perform bariatric procedures. This status was jointly awarded to the GEM Obesity & Diabetes Surgery, Gem Hospital & Research Centre and Dr.Praveen Raj. The designees successfully met the program's comprehensive requirements, and completed the rigorous review and site inspection process required for COE designation.

We are proud to have been selected as the first & only centre in the whole of south India to have had such recognition. Acknowledge our first COE designees in India," said Dr. Raul Rosenthal, Chairman of the International Bariatric Surgical Review Corporation, "In receiving designation, these providers join an elite group of more than 600 facilities and 1,100 surgeons world-wide committed to patient safety, quality care and the long-term health benefits of bariatric surgery. We value their dedication to excellence and welcome their important contributions to the specialty."


Research has consistently shown that patient outcomes are significantly better at Centers of Excellence. This may be attributed to factors including high volumes of surgeries performed at these facilities, excellence in infrastructure/facility set up, program support by the hospital, state of the art equipment and highly qualified staff (surgical and allied health) as well as the implementation of standard operating protocols and clinical guidelines to minimize complications and enhance patient care and surgery outcomes, especially a marked lowering in complication rates.
