MIVH is the most advanced and minimally invasive form of hysterectomy... more
Two small incisions are made in the back of the vagina. No gas is required. Direct vision of the cul-de-sac (back of the pelvis) is much better. Recovery is much quicker.
If you have been told you need a hysterectomy and would like to be evaluated to see if you could AVOID it with an alternative treatment OR if you DO NEED a hysterectomy and want to have less pain and recover much quicker by undergoing an MIVH call 706 218-4096. We also specialize in Urinary Incontinence and other advanced surgical pelvic procedures. See our website.
If you are a physician that desires to learn how to perform this procedure, contact your local Ethicon Endosurgical, Inc. representative to schedule Dr. Turrentine or one of his preceptors to teach you the procedures. Doctors can travel to Dr. Turrentine and be taught MIVH. Ethicon will sometimes schedule Dr. Turrentine (or one of the preceptors that he has already taught) to present his lecture, video, and then teach you in your own operating room.
