PHILADELPHIA, May 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Elsevier , a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical
information products and services, welcomes Dr. Tommaso Falcone, MD, of the
Cleveland Clinic Foundation as the new Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of
Minimally Invasive Gynecology ( JMIG ), official journal of the AAGL ,

The journal has been a prestigious forum in the field of minimally invasive
surgery for over20 years. In his new role Dr. Falcone aims to strengthen the
journal's foundation built by previous Editor-in-Chief Dr. Stephen Corson, and
further develop JMIG as the leader in delivering premier surgical information
by new technologies.

"It is a great honor for me to assume the role of Editor-in-Chief of the
Journal of Minimally Invasive Gynecology, " said Dr. Falcone. "The journal has
an ever expanding role in highlighting research and clinical outcomes
associated with minimally invasive techniques. In the modern era of increased
scrutiny of the practice of medicine, an evidence-based approach to
gynecologic surgery is necessary. JMIG should be the journal that attracts the
landmark papers that can influence how clinicians practice."

I look forward to working with him to continue and expand upon the good work
of Dr. Corson," added Andrea Boccelli, Publisher at Elsevier. "Elsevier is
