Is a robotic hysterectomy right for you? Dr. Brian Gleason will be addressing that unique question in the next installment of the UABMD Healthful Webinar series. The self-titled webinar will take place on Thursday, October 18 at noon.

Compared to a traditional open surgical procedure, robotic-assisted surgery provides faster recovery times with minimal scarring, an ideal proposition for any patient. The less invasive procedure is performed using the da Vinci Surgical System, which allows highly skilled surgeons even greater control during complex procedures.

Register for Dr. Brian Gleason’s webinar and learn how you might benefit from a robotic hysterectomy versus more traditional options.  Special guest Dr. Heather Greer will be joining the webinar to answer any additional questions after Dr. Gleason’s presentation. 

Register for the webinar today!
