Good Morning Washington Features Hysterectomy Awareness Month
In honor of May as Hysterectomy Awareness Month, Dr. MacKoul will talk about the pros and cons of the different procedures available, how the changes within the medical industry has made choosing a doctor more confusing, and the importance of patient advocacy.
Choose a GYN Specialist. Here’s Why:
An OB/GYN performs an average of 27 hysterectomies per year, while GYN surgical specialists perform an average of 400.
With the development of innovative techniques and procedures that are practiced by GYN specialists can optimize the surgical care and recovery of women.
Always look for the following qualifications from a GYN specialist:
- Fellowship-trained in minimally invasive surgery or gynecologic oncology;
- 100 percent focused on GYN surgery;
- Does not perform obstetrics – no distractions from the main focus;
- High volume of patients, making for a high level of experience; and
- No open or robotic procedures.
