Thanks to new medical advancements, Alexandra’s surgery and recovery was positively unlike her mother’s
Watching her mom’s experience years before had made Alexandra wary of having a hysterectomy. But Dr. Javier Soto assured her it would be different with the Da Vinci® Si™ surgical system – and it was. Following her recent procedure, she had almost no pain, was walking the next day, and was fully recovered within a few weeks. Today, she’s even sleeping better and feeling stronger.
“I should have done it two years ago. My life would have been so much happier.”
--Alexandra Fermin (patient of Javier Soto, M.D., Obstetrics & Gynecology)
