Gynecologic Cancer Patient Testimonials

Sarah Dining, 64
Occupation: Retired nurse

After having a complete hysterectomy for uterine cancer, I spent just one night at the hospital. The next day I was at home playing cards late into the evening! My incisions were very small, and I had very little pain after the surgery. I was able to easily get around the house and was only restricted from driving for two weeks. My family members are amazed at how rapid my recovery has been - as are friends who had traditional hysterectomies and spent weeks in pain with limited mobility.

I have nothing but praise for Dr. Kirby and my da Vinci robotic surgery® at Morton Plant. Several doctors in my family helped me research various options, and I selected Dr. Kirby because of his excellent reputation. I live in Pasco County, and my referring physician is so pleased with my outcome and my rapid recovery that she plans to refer more patients to Morton Plant for this procedure.

I am now undergoing radiation therapy, and I am confident that I will be able to live a productive life, free from the threat of cancer. I would definitely recommend the Morton Plant surgical team and the da Vinci robot to others.
