The Downward Trend of Hysterectomy

Fewer women across the U.S. are getting hysterectomies. Instead, they're opting for less-invasive procedures, such as laparoscopy, to mitigate uterine fibroids, pelvic pain, and more. Daniel Morgan, M.D. (Residency 2002, Fellowship 2005), professor of urology and of obstetrics and gynecology, and a team of researchers analyzed insurance claims submitted between 2010 and 2013 and discovered that, beyond saving patients' time, this trend saved millions of dollars in associated health care costs. Their findings were published in December 2017 in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology
