The sins of the fathers are visited on the sons: should hysterectomies be pre-certed other than vaginal?

First of all I think I should have brought a football helmet. I am going to add a little bit to this controversy and I am feeling as if I am walking amongst giants and I cannot talk as fast as he did but I will do my best to stay on time.

 

It is truly a privilege and an honor for the invitation to address you today. I would like to thank the Endometriosis Foundation, Dr. Harry Reich and the AAGL for this opportunity. The title has changed and for good reason.

 

With all the changes in health care and patient physician relationships what should come first? Mandates on practice or patients? This subject has me greatly troubled. It possibly is going to affect all the women in this room, your mothers, your daughters, your sisters and your wives, all the women that you care about.
