Michael C. Good, MD, Receives First Dual Accreditation in Continence Care

Posted on October 6, 2021

Michael Good, MD, gynecologic and urinary surgeonWe’re proud to announce that our own Michael C. Good, MD, gynecologic and urinary surgeon, has become the first medical professional in the U.S. to achieve dual accreditation as a Master Surgeon in Continence Care for Women. The accreditation means Dr. Good is recognized for providing the highest quality of care and patient safety.

The honor is bestowed by Surgical Review Corporation (SRC), a nonprofit patient safety organization, and the National Association for Continence (NAFC).

“We’re proud to recognize Dr. Michael Good for his commitment to advancing and providing quality care for all patients. This accreditation signals that this surgeon is among the best in this specialty and is dedicated to delivering the highest level of care possible.” – said Gary M. Pratt, CEO of SRC

The Best Care

The accreditation means that Dr. Good has met nationally recognized standards for his specialty. Health care facilities and surgeons seeking accreditation by SRC undergo an extensive self-assessment and inspection process.

“What they’re looking at is everything you have done for two years, so it’s taken a lot of work. They’re very thorough.” – Dr. Michael Good

Dr. Good began his medical career with an interest in minimally invasive surgery. At the time, surgeons were trained in all areas of medicine, so he had the opportunity to learn about surgery related to obstetrics and gynecology.

Nearly 30 years later, he continues to seek out opportunities to learn more.

“You’ve got to keep learning every day. You can never stop.”

Suffering with a Secret

Incontinence is a topic many people don’t like to acknowledge or discuss. Many who experience it assume they have no choice but to use padding and adult diapers.  

“I don’t know how many times I’ve heard, ‘My grandma did it, my mother, my dad and my sister does it – I just thought it’s something we all do. It’s one of those things a lot of people think is just part of getting older. Well, not necessarily.” – Dr. Michael Good

There are many forms of incontinence. Seeing a specialist who knows the different types and the most effective treatment for each one is important for the best possible outcomes. Dr. Good’s dual accreditation is affirmation of his experience from three decades in practice, his ongoing commitment to learning and his dedication to improving the quality of life for patients throughout the region.
