I would be impressed that your DR didn't let her ego get in the way of having the best possible surgeon do your procedure. She's a keeper.

Re: Dr called me in to office and said she won't do the surgery

No don't panic. My GYN did not do my surgery either. My surgeon was also a gyn-oncologist. From what my gyn told me, she refers all her patients that are to have a hysterectomy to this surgeon for several reason. The first and most important reason is because they are highly educated in the female reproductive system and if a problem were to come up/or something was evident they are the best to handle the situation. It does not mean anything is wrong or there is any reason to think there is, it justs means your dr. is putting in the most capable hands their is. Secondly, your Dr. has a obligation to you to fully disclose any and all information so if she is telling everything is fine, she is just an awesome lap surgeon then believe her.

Relax and good luck,
Tracy

I waited to get a specialist to do mine. So I would be very happy if my doc had said this to me so I did not have to wait so long...
Having someone who is more familiar and use to doing surgeries will help in the end for healing.
Good Luck...

Totally agree with surferbabe. Your doctor is AWESOME to know when the care she can provide isn't what you need. Give her a big thank you!

My doctor isn't doing the surgery either. I am using an oncologist surgeon also but my doctor will be in the OR. I agree that it is great that the dr's ego didn't get in the way. She is putting her patient's needs first.

I totally agree. It doesn't mean anything is wrong, it is just that these docs are most familiar with this type of surgery. Kudos to your doc to refer you to them. She is awesome!

Re: Dr called me in to office and said she won't do the surgery

I admire your doctor. She is not only wise to do so, but cares about YOU.
If there is a "hint" of cancer, a gyn/oncologist should do the surgery, IMHO.

Just in case.
Most likely, it will be O.K., but in case there are cancer concerns, an oncologist might make different decisions about how to proceed with your surgery than a regular gyn.

Good Luck.

Re: Dr called me in to office and said she won't do the surgery

I'm having a gyn-onc do mine too and I'm thrilled about it. I figure she's done surgeries 1,000x more complex than mine, so it should be a walk in the park. Definitely don't panic - if they don't believe there's anything wrong it simply sounds like they're just looking out for your best interest!

Re: Dr called me in to office and said she won't do the surgery

I was also referred to a gyn/oncologist for my davinchi. I have the BRCA2 gene and a cyst on my overy so just in case I was referred to him. I'm very happy though- my regular gyn dosnt do the davinchi! So your dr is just doing what's best for you! Don't worry! Hugs
