Hello, I'm doctor Gillian Johnson As a former fibroids sufferer what I want to tell you is You don't have to suffer. Fibroids and fibroids symptoms can be cured WITHOUT surgery or a hysterectomy. I had two uterine fibroids, and you may know how painful is. After several unsuccessful medications, my gynecologist wanted me to undergo surgery. But another doctor suggested me to follow a new holisticdrugfree method, accessible on the web. In just 5 weeks fibroids shrunk drastically. No more pain, no more irregular periods, no more bladder pressure. The following ultrasounds shown that both of these fibroid were completely gone.
Myoma Uterine Fibroids What is Myoma, Causes, Symptoms and Treatment for Myoma
A fibroid is a benign tumor that mainly consists have muscular tissue and usually grows inside the uterus. Fibroids are also called myomas. Its size ranges widely, from a small tumor the size of a pea to a large tumor almost the size of the uterus. Myomas are classified into three types, depending on the location where they are found. The intramural myoma, a fibroid that grows in the muscular wall of the uterus. This subserosal myoma, a fibroid located just beneath the outside mucosal covering of the uterus. Here the fibroid projects to the.
Outside and occasionally remains connected with the uterus only through a small stalk. The submucosal myoma, a tumor that grows beneath the surface of the uterus lining. Therefore, this type of fibroids can grow into the uterine cavity. The actual causes have development of a fibroid are still unclear. However, it has been documented that fibroids are associated with high levels of estrogen, the female sex hormone. Fibroids can only developed during reproductive years of women. Following menopause, the production of estrogen decreases which will usually cause fibroids to shrink or disappear.
Myomas are more common in nonpregnant and infertile women. In general, fibroids are asymptomatic or associated with just a few complaints if any complaints. If any complaints occur, then the location, size and type of the fibroid are the major factors. Fibroids can affect nearby structures. They can cause compression of the bladder, which may lead to urinary complaints, or may obstruct the intestine, which may result in constipation. Other complaints can be backaches, abdominal problems, menstrual flow disturbances. Fibroids can impede normal childbirth, which may require caesarean delivery. Fibroids relatively more often lead to miscarriages.
Whenever fibroids cause symptoms, they need to be removed or shrinked. Medications sometimes cause fibroid to shrink by blocking the production and secretion of estrogen. In other cases, surgery may be required to remove the fibroid. The type of surgery depends on the location of the fibroid. Sometimes it's possible to remove the fibroid with the help of the tube entered through the vagina and the procedure is called hysteroscopic myomectomy. In other cases, surgery through the abdominal wall may be necessary. In the case of a large fibroid, hysterectomy may be the only solution.
Discussing Minimally Invasive Laparoscopic Surgery miVIP
I had a baby 20 months ago and after delivering and recovering, I had to have a Csection so there was a bit of a longer recovery and so I wasn't sure which of the symptoms I was experiencing were just from either the Csection or the pregnancy you know sort of normal postpregnancy symptoms finally the pain started to get a little bit worse and the heavy menstruation really was concerning so I ended up coming in to see Dr. Ghozland. Dr. Ghozland has an excellent way in general way of.
Relaxing you or explaining things in a way that make it seem like it's going to be okay I think he suspected that it might be endometriosis but wasn't sure at the time and suggested laproscopic surgery which I didn't know a lot about but he explained to me that it was less invasive and it's an outpatient procedure and that you do go under but you get to leave that day from the hospital so it didn't sound quite as scary as a more major surgery and that's what I ended up deciding to do and you just don't.
Patient Dies 1 Day After Gynecologist Perforated Colon During Laparoscopy NY Attorney Explains
She lost her life all because her gynecologist failed to recognize that he perforated her colon during the course of a laparoscopy. Want to know what this is about Come join me for a moment as I share with you this remarkable story. Hi, I'm Gerry Oginski. I'm a New York medical malpractice and personal injury trial lawyer practicing law here in the state of New York. She was going to have a laparoscopic GYN procedure. The doctor told her this was a simple procedure. She'd be in and out shortly. You know what.
She went ahead and had the procedure. She trusted her gynecologist. During the course of the laparoscopy the doctor perforated, made a hole in her colon, but the tragic reality was, he failed to recognize it. Now he does the procedure, he finishes it, he closes her up, sends her off to recovery and then after a couple of hours she goes home. A few hours later, at night, the doctor calls the patients and says, How are you doing. The patient says, I'm not feeling well. My abdomen feels really strange.
He says. Don't worry about it. It's from all the air that we put into your belly in order for me to see during the course of this laparoscopic surgery. Well guess what happened During the course of the night she got worse and worse to the point where her son found her dead on the floor in the morning. They tried to revive her. It was no good. No use. Now only on autopsy when a doctor did a clinical examination of what happened to her inside to look to determine what was the cause of death why did you die.
After the surgery only one day, within 24 hours. It turns out that the medical examiner was able to find that the colon which was near where he was operating had been perforated. As a result of that everything from within the colon was leaking out. She suffered a massive infection that spread throughout her body, that's known as sepsis, and that overwhelmed her and caused her to die that morning. During the course of my question and answer session, known as a deposition, during the course of the lawsuit I got the doctor to.
Acknowledge and admit that during the laparoscopy he has an obligation to make sure that there are no organs nearby, adjacent have suffered any type of injury before he closes the patient up. This doctor could not explain to me how this perforation occurred and how he'd missed it during the course of this procedure. The only answer is that he violated the basic standards of surgical and medical care, and that if he was careful he would have recognized the fact that this patient suffered an intraoperative injury to her colon. Had he recognized it.
At that time he could've called in a general surgeon to come in and try and fix that problem. If it were a minor problem he simply would've oversewn it. If it was a significant problem then now the surgeon would have cut off the ends of the offending injury, connected the two ends together that's known as an endtoend anastomosis, and now this patient would be alive today. Why do I share this great information with you I share it with you just to give you an insight and an understanding of one case.
Where I was able to help the surviving family obtain compensation for the loss of their mother as a result of a doctor's incompetence and carelessness. I realize you've got questions or concerns about your own particular matter. Well, if your matter did happen here in the state of New York, and you've got legal questions what I encourage you to do is pick up the phone and call me. I can answer your legal questions. You know, this is something I do every single day and I'd love to chat with you. You can.
Laparoscopic Surgery Professional Brooklyn Gynecological Services Brooklyn, NY
For many women surgery may be the best treatment option for common gynecological conditions such as endometriosis, large fibroids, abnormal bleeding, and vaginal prolapse. Until recently options included traditional surgery with a large incision or Laparoscopy which uses small incisions but is limited to very simple procedures. At our facility we use the very latest in technology through the use of Robotic Laparoscopic Surgery, also known as robotassisted surgery. A minimally invasive option for even the most complex surgical procedure. What is Robotic Laparoscopic Surgery It's the use of the da Vinci robotic surgical system.
Robot assisted surgery is an effective, minimally invasive alternative to both traditional surgery and Laparoscopy. Through tiny incisions about 12cm, this robotic system can control every aspect of the surgery. A computer console that contains hand controls is used by your surgeon to manipulate the machine's robotic arms, wrists other micro instruments. This robotic system provides a range of motion and agility that can far exceed human ability. What are the potential benefits to having Robotic Laparoscopic Surgery Patient's potential benefits include less scarring, significantly less pain, reduced blood loss, fewer complications,.
Mark Lowdermilk, M.D.
My name is Mark Lowdermilk, I'm an OBGYN at Swedish Medical Center. One of the things that attracted me to OBGYN as a discipline in medicine was the opportunity to be both the primary care provider as well as a surgeon. From the GYN standpoint at Swedish we offer a lot of minimally invasive surgical procedures, and that certainly is a great interest of mine. It's great to be able to offer individuals and patients procedures where the recovery is very quick as opposed to a much longer typical six week recoveries for major abdominal surgery. Delivering.
Babies is always exciting. It's never the same, every delivery is different, and I think that moment when the baby is in the mother's arms is probably one of the most important and bonding moments. It never gets old to see that type of joy associated with it. One of the amazing things about working at Swedish is the fact that I don't feel like I'm an individual player. I feel like I'm part of a really important team whose major goal is to provide the very best care to the patients that we see. I have doctors outside of my.
Eleanor R. Friele, M.D.
I'm Dr. Eleanor Friele, I'm an OBGYN at Swedish Medical Center. In our OBGYN group, I take care of women of all ages, delivering babies, seeing how they advance being moms, and giving them the chance to have minimally invasive surgery. Women come to us knowing they might need surgery. They're afraid, they're afraid they might have cancer, they're afraid this is going to take them a long time off work. And being able to help them understand what needs to be done and why it needs to be done. And we give them all sorts of options because.
Each one has a different need. One of my favorite parts of my work is being an OBGYN surgeon and a gynecologic surgeon specifically working with the robotics, being able to offer people minimally invasive surgery. It's allowed us to not have to resort opening patients up. This way they're going home the next day, with their recovery back at work, back to their normal life in two weeks instead of six to eight. I think that Swedish Medical Center's OBGYN is one of the top notched ones in the country. We are very, very diligent.
What are Fibroids Causes, symptoms and treatment of fibroids
Welcome back lovely ladies today we are going to figure out fibroids. figure out fibroids figure out fibroids It's like a tongue twister! say that three times fast. anyway, fibroids are something that you may never have to face because it generally tends to affect women age 30 or more however it is interesting to note that 25 percent women will probably suffer from fibroids at one point in their life but I'll never have symptoms and they'll never need treatment so what the heck are fibroids Fibroids are noncancerous growths.
In the muscle walls in your uterus. Studies show that that being overweight or having high blood pressure are major risk factors. Fibroids tend to shrink when your body goes through menopause. So, what causes fibroids unknown. I know, sorry to disappoint you. the thing is is that the growth depends on the estrogen levels in the body and as the woman continues to menstruate and the sizes can vary they can be so small that you need a microscope to look at them or they can be really big as big as the uterus. now if you do have symptoms,.
Some of them may include pelvic cramping when you're not on your period, lower abdomen pain, lower back pain, painful sex, and increased urine frequency. the doctor will do an ultrasound to check for all of this. Now some treatment options generally include getting on birth control pills or an IUD Intrauterine Device to help regulate the estrogen, and if it really really really comes down to it surgery is also an option. Again, all this varies on your diagnosis and the severity of your problems. Always remember to go to a doctor to get.
New Minimally Invasive Options for Gynecologic Surgery at North Shore Medical Center NSMC
This is the biggest change I've seen in my practice in 20 years its what I am most excited about since I've come out of residency a patient may come and see me because she's got heavy bleeding and she was found to have a fibroid uterus as it turns out she's been dealing with this for about three years because her mother had the same thing and she had surgery using a traditional laparotomy big incision she's in the hospital for a week and didn't feel well again for eight weeks what I can now tell this patient is.
Let me bring you to the hospital I can use small incisions you can go home the same day i'll have you driving in three days and you can be back to work in two weeks you know we've been doing this for three years and we still say it's a a great operations really sweet operation because it really allows the patient a comfort level that they wouldn't have otherwise if they had to have a major operation or major incision the procedures would be as follows office tubal sterilization.
Office endometrial ablations for heavy bleeding then transitioning to the hospital we do laproscopic supracervical hysterectomies total laparoscopic hysterectomies we can combine those procedures with removal of the tubes and ovaries as well we can do laparoscopy for pelvic pain and endometriosis laparoscopy for removal the ovaries and tubes if we need to for history of breast cancer or for history of ovarian cycsts an example the recent patient is a patient of mine who had a fibroid uterus and the fibroid itself was the size of a grapefruit 10 centimeters.
She had not only heavy bleeding from this but pelvic pain and we were able to see her get her in to the hospital did a hysterectomy the specimen itself weighed 1.5 pounds she was able to go home the following day and she's back at work as we speak which is two and a half weeks after the procedure this is someone who's been living with pain for three to four years shoot me in the eye and say this is so easy how could I possibly have waited for so long.
