hysterectomies are designed to reduce recovery time and, in most cases, pain,
while providing less noticeable scarring. It is my goal to educate women that
through these surgical advancements they no longer have to suffer like previous
generations,” said Dr. Frederick.
Each year, more than 600,000
women are hospitalized for hysterectomies, or removal of the uterus.
Hysterectomies are often performed as a treatment for a life-threatening
diagnosis, to relieve ongoing pelvic pain and pressure, or to stop abnormal
bleeding that comes from a chronic condition.
“Nearly one-third of women
in the United States will have had a hysterectomy by the time they turn age
60,” added Frederick.
Dr. Fredrick completed medical
school (2001) and a residency (2005) at the University of Kentucky, Lexington.
He is board certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology. Dr.
Fredrick maintains an office at Suite 415, Medical Plaza A, 617 23rd St., Ashland,
