Jade Stanley, a local Sheridan resident, is the first Sheridan Memorial Hospital (SMH) patient to undergo hysterectomy surgery using state-of-the-art da Vinci® robotics. Stanley underwent the hysterectomy at the hospital in December and has been sharing of her positive experience since.
When asked why she chose SMH to perform her hysterectomy, Stanley said, “Our local hospital has great services, and I feel very comfortable there. The staff are all friendly, and the doctors are very knowledgeable. The SMH Women’s Clinic also delivered my child, so I wanted to stick with the people that knew my history.”
Rebecca Krzyminski, DO, one of the physicians at the Women’s Clinic who is specially trained in robotic-assisted surgery, performed the operation. Stanley had previously worked with Dr. Krzyminski, having glowing words for the staff and doctor, calling them “very knowledgeable,” “professional,” and “down to earth.” Stanley continued to share that the team at SMH “are all friendly and eager to assist. Dr. Krzyminski’s confidence is contagious.”
Stanley also spoke positively of her recovery, saying, “It’s been great.” She was able to walk out of the hospital the same day as her surgery and has been going ever since.
When asked if she would recommend SMH and robotic surgery to potential patients, Stanley said, “If you’ve got a hospital as great as this one in your neck of the woods, why go anywhere else? I would tell them not to be afraid. My recovery was virtually painless. It’s definitely the way to go.”
SMH is committed to providing excellent, patient-centered care with an outstanding healthcare team and state-of-the-art technology right here at home. Robotic-assisted surgeries are now available for anyone needing procedures such as hysterectomies, hernia repair, endometriosis, gall bladder removal, ovary removal, and prostate biopsy/removal.
