Dr. Indman performed two procedures for me at the same time – a hysteroscopic myomectomy and an endometrial ablation. From the pre-op to post surgery, I did not experience any pain or a single cramp. I was back to work the next day and back on my regular workout schedule within two weeks. After three weeks, I went on a cycling vacation and rode 350+ miles over hilly terrain. I felt great! Without the surgery, there was no possible way I could have done this. For the first time in 1 1/2 years, I am not experiencing heavy bleeding and checking where the nearest bathrooms are.
My experience with Dr. Indman and his staff have been nothing short of fantastic. Dr. Indman is a warm, caring, highly skilled surgeon – with a fun sense of humor to boot! He is one of those rare gems in the medical profession today – someone who truly puts patients first. I found Dr. Indman while researching my symptoms on the Internet. The wealth of helpful information on his website gave me a lot of confidence even before I met him. His deep expertise and decades of experience are evident from his thorough examinations and explanations. — S.K.
Comment: S.K. had a submucous fibroid, which was treated by hysteroscopic myomectomy and endometrial ablation as an outpatient. Here are actual pictures from her surgery. The first shows the fibroid on the right side of the uterus, with the loop that will be used to remove it. The second shows the fibroid having been removed, and the third is after endometrial ablation. I do the endometrial ablation under direct vision to be sure that no areas are missed.
It is not unusual for women to resume most normal activities within a day or two. Careful patient selection and utmost skill are required for a safe and successful procedure. — Paul Indman, M.D.
Update: 12/14/2010: S.K. came in for a 4 month check after her procedure, having recently run a marathon. She said that she kept thinking that without the surgery running a marathon would have been impossible.
