“ My name is Amy Lyons and I had a robotic hysterectomy at Crittenton Hospital. The staff and Dr. Green were wonderful. My procedure went very well and I was in the hospital less than two days with my recovery being about a week and a half at home. After thinking I was going to be off work for six weeks for a typical hysterectomy, I was very happy to have the procedure done robotically, which enabled me to get back to work quickly. I recommend this procedure very highly if necessary. ” - Amy Lyons
