Not your mother's hysterectomy. VWC's Dr. Keith Berkle shares the benefits of the outpatient laparascopic TLH procedure with the Richmond Times-Dispatch. Having the surgery in an outpatient setting reduces the cost to the patient - significantly. And, it allows women to get back to living their lives more quickly. In some cases, that means returning to work as early as 10-14 days after surgery.
Zika The CDC recommends that if your male sexual partner has been exposed to Zika virus that you use condoms or abstain from sex for at least six months to avoid him passing the virus to you. If you are planning to conceive the recommendation is the same; you should wait at least six months after he was exposed before trying to conceive.
If you are pregnant or trying to become pregnant, we recommend visiting the CDC’s website regularly to stay up to date on the latest recommendations regarding Zika virus. An easy to remember link is cdc.gov/zika. If you have questions or concerns, please call 804.288.4084 or send a message through our secure patient portal.
