ORLive Presents: Robotic-Assisted Hysterectomy: Offers Patients Recovery Time of Only One Night in the Hospital and a Faster Recovery Period at Home

Live CME Webcast: From Hartford Hospital: October 2, 2007 at 6:00 PM EDT (22:00 UTC)

HARTFORD, CT--(Marketwire - September 10, 2007) - More than half a million times annually in the US, cancer and other serious conditions warrant hysterectomy -- the removal of a woman's uterus.

Usually the procedure is performed via an abdominal incision that requires a 3- to 5-day hospital stay and a 6- to 8-week recovery period. Now, in a handful of hospitals around the country, new da Vinci® robotic technology allows physicians to perform this procedure through small incisions that require a recovery time of only one night in the hospital and a significantly shorter recovery period at home.

Watch as Hartford Hospital surgeon Dr. Amy Brown performs this revolutionary new procedure live on the Internet.
