Though Mass General is an excellent hospital, it's not the only one in Boston who is winning awards. Brigham and Women's Hospital was ranked in the top 10 for seven specialties, including Cancer and Gynecology. It gets top marks for innovation and leads the country in cartilage repair and in face transplant surgery, having performed three full face surgeries since 2009. This hospital is also on the forefront of robotic surgery, using FDA-approved surgical systems to perform minimally invasive gynecologic and urologic procedures.
