OUTPATIENT HYSTERECTOMIES SAFE CHOICE FOR WOMEN

DR. GAUTA PAIN STUDY PUBLISHED IN INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL

Naples, FL – Joseph Gauta, MD, FACOG was recently published in the Journal of the Society of Laparoendoscopic Surgeons for his two-year study on “Outpatient Laparoscopic Hysterectomy: Evaluation of Pain.” The journal is a leading publication for minimally invasive therapies and is distributed in more than 63 countries to multi-specialty physicians and surgeons, teaching institutions and medical reference libraries.

The results of his study compared two groups of similar women receiving two types of laparoscopic hysterectomy procedures -- laparoscopically assisted vaginal hysterectomy and total laparoscopic hysterectomy. Both procedures were performed in an outpatient surgical setting. He concluded that there was no significant difference in post surgical pain, recovery or success of outcome. 

The study helps to reinforce the strides and confidence patients and their physicians have in choosing ambulatory surgery facilities for care. In this case, outpatient hysterectomy is a safe procedure that may improve patient satisfaction surgically and financially, and either approach is well tolerated by patients.
