Dr. Lynn Kowalski, successful gynecological oncologist of Nevada Surgery and Cancer Center moved to Las Vegas in 1998 in order to become a hysterectomy surgeon. It was in the same year that the support group HysterSisters was founded by Kathy Kelley.
HysterSisters describes themselves as a social advocacy health education company for women, by women. They have created a website for support in all things relating to the hysterectomy surgery, providing information and support from the time of your diagnosis or choice to have a hysterectomy, how to prepare for the surgery, and what to expect/how to care for yourself after the surgery.
HysterSisters has over 380,000 members on their website. Here you can find countless articles full of useful information, and message other members if you have a question about your hysterectomy process. HysterSisters strives to validate women in their search for answers, believing that the surgery and recovery is made easier when you have others who have gone through the same experience rooting for you. All women can benefit from having an increased awareness of hysterectomy and women’s health awareness.
Dr. Lynn Kowalski founded NVSCC in 2005, and is passionate about cancer treatment and helping women understanding hysterectomy surgeries and options. She wrote a book to further women’s knowledge entitled Not Your Mother’s Hysterectomy. Her medical practice focuses on the treatment of gynecologic cancers including ovarian, cervical, uterine, and vulvar cancers. She also offers her surgical expertise for complex gynecologic problems such as fibroids, endometriosis, pelvic masses, and treatment of precancerous conditions.
Dr. Lynn Kowalski encourages women to learn about their gynecological health and well-being, and has performed thousands of hysterectomies in the Las Vegas area. For a doctor that will answer your questions, and show you support, there couldn’t be a better choice. You don’t have to go through a hysterectomy alone. Finding support and a place to be open and discuss your questions will make this transition easier. So start with a great doctor that will get you on the path to a better life and better health.
