Women Can Now Learn About Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Treatments at AAGL.org
Date:4/3/2008

Newly updated Web site heralds AAGL commitment to patient education

CYPRESS, Calif., April 3, 2008 /PRNewswire/ -- AAGL, the professional organization of gynecologists interested in endoscopy and minimally invasive gynecology, has retooled its Web site, http://www.aagl.org, and added a comprehensive patient education section on common gynecologic conditions and the minimally invasive options available to treat them. The site continues to provide physician members with the information and resources they need to elevate their practice of gynecology.

Minimally invasive procedures have many advantages for women including reduced risk of infection, minimized scarring, less blood loss, decreased post-operative pain, and generally quicker recovery time than traditional surgery. Yet, women are not routinely offered less invasive alternatives.

While endoscopic techniques are transforming the practice of surgery, its rate of adoption rate in gynecology has been slow. Laparoscopic surgery for gall bladder removal reached an 80% adoption rate in just ten years, while laparoscopic hysterectomy, which was introduced 10 years ago, is still used for less than 15% of the 600,000 hysterectomies annually performed in the United States. In addition, the total number of hysterectomies performed could be greatly reduced with more adoption of newer, less invasive treatments that are available.

"AAGL wants to raise the bar in women's health care. Far too many women are unnecessarily suffering because they are only offered painful, invasive surgical options," said Dr. Charles Miller, president of AAGL. "As an organization, we are committed to ensuring that more women learn about minimally invasive gynecologic options and ask their doctor about them before committing to any procedure. We believe our new Web site content for patients is a key step towards achieving this mission."
