First Single Site Hysterectomy in Los Angeles

Cedars-Sinai Marina del Rey Hospital recently became the first hospital in the greater Los Angeles area to perform a highly specialized single-site hysterectomy.

Board certified gynecological surgeon Dr. David Ghozland performed the procedure on April 28, 2014 with the da Vinci™ Si robotic system. He is currently the only gynecological surgeon in the Los Angeles area trained to perform this minimally invasive surgery.

“Cedars-Sinai Marina del Rey Hospital is committed to being at the forefront of new and advanced procedures that improve the patient experience, and we are proud to be the first area hospital to offer this less invasive surgery,” said Dr. Ghozland. “We know some of the reasons women may hesitate to receive surgery to treat a condition include pain, scarring and long recovery times that may impact their daily routine. With our expertise in this single-site procedure, we are able to virtually eliminate scarring, lessen the recovery time, as well as potentially minimize pain compared to a traditional hysterectomy.”
