Just nine days after having large Fibroids removed via minimally invasive surgery, Tanya Powell was back on her feet and feeling great! She attended the San Francisco Symphony and the opening night gala at the San Francisco Opera. Dr. Wittenberg was Ms. Powell’s surgeon and our whole team was happy to help get Tanya to those events pain-free.
To have her Fibroids removed, Ms. Powell underwent robotic surgery. A robotic surgery requires very small incisions, only 8mm and gives doctors greater control and precision while operating. With this type of surgery, a patient’s recovery time is shorter and their pain levels are significantly less than that of a patient who underwent a standard open surgery – as evidenced by Ms. Powell’s lovely photos.
