KDMC presents Minimally Invasive Hysterectomy – Not Your Grandmother’s Hysterectomy


King’s Daughters Medical Center obstetrician/gynecologist Brian Frederick, M.D., presents Minimally Invasive Hysterectomy – Not Your Grandmother’s Hysterectomy. This free educational session takes place from noon to 1 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 22, at the Park Board Room in King’s Daughters Parkview Café, 2201 Lexington Ave.

“Minimally invasive 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, and can be reached by calling (606) 325-6888.

This event is open to anyone, although reservations are requested. Reserve your seat by calling 1-888-377-KDMC (5362). Light refreshments will be provided. Convenient parking is available in the lot at the corner of Lexington Avenue and 22nd Street, next to the KDMC Human Resources building.
