Second surgical hysterectomy opinion by expert gynecologist will reduce unnecessary surgeries and potential complications with associated cost. Utilizing vetted surgeons and experts in the field, second surgical opinion for hysterectomy will improve women’s health.
It is the position of the AIMIS that patients should be aware of the expertise of their surgeon prior to a procedure being preformed. We believe that every hysterectomy for benign disease should be planned secondary to the disease state not to a specific technique. Patients should seek surgeons that are accountable and transparent with surgical outcomes data and who provide hysterectomy options. AIMIS will support patient access to physicians that show outcomes and include the patient in the surgical decision process, including alternatives to hysterectomy when appropriate.
All Alternative Medical and Surgical options should be discussed with patients prior to the recommendation of hysterectomy.
