Pricey robotic surgery shouldn’t be the first or even second choice for most women who need a hysterectomy, according to the American Congress of Obstetrics and Gynecology. Instead, ACOG says vaginal hysterectomy is the preferred procedure, calling it the “gold standard” for hysterectomy.
Why? Not only is it less costly, it’s less invasive.
“Complication rates are low, the ability of the patient to recover and return to normal activity is quicker, compared to alternative routes,” ACOG says.
Dr. Skorberg and Dr. Worford perform the most vaginal hysterectomies in Fort Collins and Northern Colorado, and, hands down, are the two best surgeons in the area for this procedure.
