"Minimally invasive Laparoscopic Hysterectomies are redefining women's health," stated Dr. Genobaga. "The surgery offers women safer and sometimes more effective alternatives to traditional procedures. Minimally invasive hysterectomy allows for quicker recoveries and less pain and costs less too." According to healthcare experts, traditional solutions, such as hysterectomy, particularly the commonly used total abdominal hysterectomy are more costly to the healthcare system and therefore more costly to patients.

Dr. Genobaga's presentation will include:

•              Reasons for hysterectomy

Fibroids, Menorrhagia, Endometriosis, Uterine Prolapse, Female Reproductive Cancers, Heavy Uterine Bleeding

•              What is hysterectomy?

Abdominal, Vaginal, Laparoscopic.

•              Do I really need a Hysterectomy?

                Often a hysterectomy is an elective treatment, meaning there may be other options    available to treat fibroids, endometriosis, uterine pro-lapse and heavy bleeding.

                - If having a hysterectomy is the best option for you, there are several types of              hysterectomies available including, minimally invasive procedures.
