About Hysterectomies

The AAGL (American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists) states in 2011:

"It is the position of the AAGL that most hysterectomies for benign disease should be performed either vaginally or laparoscopically...Surgeons without the requisite training and skills required for the safe performance of VH or LH should enlist the aid of colleagues who do or should refer patients requiring hysterectomy to such individuals for their surgical care."

Did You Know?

At WHII, 98% of major surgeries were accomplished via Minimally Invasive Approach (vaginal, laparoscopically, or with robotic assist) in 2014.

88% of our surgical patients were home less than 24 hours after their procedures last year.
