Botsford News Release
Farmington Hills, Mich. (July 7, 2009)---Botsford Hospital Obstetrician/Gynecologist, Richard Herman, D.O., is offering a new option for women interested in a minimally invasive alternative to a traditional abdominal hysterectomy. This option, called a total laparoscopic hysterectomy, results in minimal blood loss and allows a woman to be able to walk around comfortably the same day as the surgery.
A total laparoscopic hysterectomy is performed using three small incisions cosmetically placed on the abdomen. The minimally invasive procedure uses direct laparoscopic visualization to remove the uterus and cervix, making it beneficial for women who require the removal of the uterus and cervix but are not good candidates for a vaginal hysterectomy.
Dr. Herman, says, “Women are able to achieve a fast and speedy recovery. Usually only an overnight hospital stay is required and patients are discharged with very little pain or discomfort. Many of my patients find that they are able to take care of themselves, drive in a few days and return to work in less than one week after the surgery.”
If you would like to be referred to a Botsford doctor and learn more about this procedure, please contact Botsford’s HealthMatch at (877) 477-DOC1.
