Dr. Lynn Kowalski has performed over 1,000 hysterectomies, and she shares her expertise on the subject in her book, “Not Your Mother’s Hysterectomy.” Kowalski discusses new surgical technologies available that result in a much smaller incision, therefore, quicker recovery time.
In the past, when a woman needed a hysterectomy, it meant a large cut and a lengthy and painful recovery. Sometimes women were unaware of what was being removed. These horror stories have affected women’s perspective of hysterectomies. Some women even put off surgery due to this fear resulting in even further complications. The aim of Kowalski’s book is to empower and educate women who are facing cancer and potential hysterectomies. She presents possible options and includes first-hand accounts of women who share their personal hysterectomy experiences to the reader.
