In reference to the picture on this post: “There’s a new girl in town and she made her American debut at the side of internationally known laparoscopic surgeon, Dr. Richard Rosenfield. ViKY, as she is affectionately known, is a revolutionary, lightweight robot developed by EndoControl, headquartered in France. With ViKY at his side, Dr. Rosenfield made history by performing the first documented solo, laparoscopic hysterectomy in the world. Significantly, the entire procedure was performed in an outpatient facility, Pearl Women’s Center.” For more of the story go here

    I very much appreciate that Get Fit Now goes beyond telling us to eat right and exercise just because “it’s good for us.” Dr. Rosenfield gave specific info about how integrating diet and exercise can help prevent so many “female problems” and often preventable surgeries. Having had to have a hysterectomy myself because of endometriosis and fibroids many years before the procedure was done less invasively, I know how helpful it is that Get Fit gives the list of reproductive-related signs that point to the need for doctor visits.
