What’s surgery recovery time?

Dr. Rees performs the majority of surgeries using minimally invasive techniques. For example, 99% of hysterectomies are performed using gentle laparoscopic techniques (5mm instead of 10-12mm instruments, no staples left inside, absorbable sutures are hidden under the skin, attention to incision placement for the maximal cosmetic result) and the majority of patients go home the same day. Most patients require no or minimal narcotic pain medication. Many of these patients return to work within 2 weeks. For patients undergoing minor surgeries recovery is even faster!
