Date:6/18/2010

Mississippi’s only female Gynecologic Oncologist Mildred Ridgway, MD is now performing a new procedure at Baptist Medical Center in Jackson, Miss. using the da Vinci® surgical robot to remove uterine fibroids. Removing uterine fibroids is referred to as a myomectomy, or fibroidectomy.
