A Hysterectomy May Not Be Necessary

A Hysterectomy May Not Be Necessary

Washington, D.C.- Dr. Amy Porter of Virginia Hospital Center will host a discussion session live on, today, Monday, December 4, from 12:00 noon until 1:00 pm to present information on alternative options to the traditional abdominal hysterectomy as well as to answer questions submitted by participants.

Many women are unaware of the alternatives to the traditional hysterectomy known to leave behind six-inch scars and weeks of recovery.

Many are also unaware of the availability of minimally-invasive techniques such as laparoscopy or vaginal hysterectomy that produce reductions in blood loss, pain and recovery time.

A new advertising campaign by Washington, D.C. based agency Adworks has brought these issues and specialties to light for Virginia Hospital Center.

The campaign, designed exclusively to run online, uses banner ads to provocatively state, "If you're planning on having an abdominal hysterectomy, you probably don't need to."

Once viewers click on the banner ad they are directed immediately to the Virginia Hospital Center website to provide the viewer with information needed to make an informed decision on their personal health.
