CLEVELAND, OH--(Marketwire - August 14, 2008) - On Thursday, August 14, watch a Robotic-Assisted Hysterectomy recorded from University Hospitals Case Medical Center in Cleveland, Ohio. The procedure will be performed by Vivian von Gruenigan, MD, and moderated by Robert DeBernardo, MD. Robotic-assisted hysterectomy provides patients with a shorter hospital stay and quicker recovery time. During the webcast, viewers have the opportunity to e-mail the physicians directly with any questions they have about the procedure.

Women who undergo this minimally invasive procedure typically have less pain following surgery. Less risk of infection, less blood loss and fewer transfusions. Aside from the surgical benefits, the cosmetic outcome is also a big plus for patients. Vivian von Gruenigan, MD Director of Robotic Surgery at University Hospitals Case Medical Center states, "Instead of having a long surgical scar, they have 3 to 4 small scars from the ports. In addition, they take less narcotics and they can return to work sooner."
