Dr. McCarus was highly recommended to me for a laparoscopic supra-cervical hysterectomy by my personal gynecologist. It was because, I was told, Dr. McCarus is a leading surgeon in his field and works at a hospital that is a teaching hospital and I was told he has access to the finest, updated equipment. When I went to consult with Dr. McCarus, he was upbeat, positive, friendly and professional, and he helped me come to a decision that would be the best way to handle my situation. I had been dealing with a fibroid tumor that happened to be the kind that caused pain and constant bleeding to the point of severe anemia. My personal gynecologist had been working with me for 2 years trying to help me with every possible avenue to save the uterus. When it became apparent I needed a hysterectomy, he sent me to Dr. McCarus. My doctor said that he himself could do the surgery but knowing the reputation of Dr. McCarus, he opted to send me to him. So, Dr. McCarus performed a laparoscopic supra-cervical hysterectomy. I went home the day after the surgery, the pain from it was minimal, I was back to work in 2 weeks. No surgery is fun and there is always a recovery period but I am confident the recovery time was shortened because of Dr. McCarus' competence and expertise in his field.
