COMMUNITY: Frequently Asked Questions
Uterus1: What are the benefits of less-invasive treatments?
Dr. Ignacio Armas: The advantage is you decrease the risks, you don’t have to do major abdominal surgery, you change the period of convalescence, so women are getting back to their family and to work a lot faster. You decrease cost because you decrease, or eliminate completely, hospital stay.
Dr. Bruce Kahn: Minimally invasive treatments improve patients’ lives by shortening their “down time” after surgery. Patients return to their normal activities more quickly. There is also accumulating evidence that many of these procedures have less risk than traditional therapies.
