Several years ago, Vicki Pennington began to suffer from pain and discomfort associated with a woman’s health issue, so she consulted her OB/GYN of 10 years, Dr. Jennifer Guggenheim with the Center for Robotic Surgery at Presbyterian/St. Luke’s Medical Center (P/SL). After exploring several nonsurgical options, Dr. Guggenheim determined a robotic hysterectomy would be best since it is less invasive, has smaller incisions and quicker recovery time.
Catherine Martin recently underwent a robotic hysterectomy with Dr. Jennifer Guggenheim. She shares her story.
