Is it Time for a Hysterectomy? – Thursday, August 14 | 6 p.m. | Coliseum Medical Centers | 330 Hospital Drive, Bldg. C, Suite 120. Do you suffer from heavy menstrual bleeding and cramps that seem to be getting worse? It may be time to talk to your doctor about why this is occurring and possible treatment options. It could even be time to talk to your physician about having a hysterectomy. Today, a hysterectomy can be performed with minimally invasive surgical procedures that leave almost no scar and have a short recovery period. Join Dr. Paul Roddenberry, the only physician in Middle Georgia performing single-site hysterectomies, as he discusses symptoms and treatment for heavy bleeding and cramping. He will discuss the process that would lead a physician to recommend a hysterectomy, and the options available to patients. For reservations, call (478) 746-4646.
