Over the 30+ years, I've performed thousands of successful surgeries, and have made sure that patients heal and recover quickly. I will explain what you can expect so that it will be a positive experience. I perform laparoscopic surgery at both hospitals in Santa Monica and at the Surgery Center of Santa Monica. Most patients recover more quickly after laparoscopic hysterectomies compared to abdominal hysterectomies. Whenever possible, I operate laparoscopically.
