What type of specialist should I look for to have fibrous remove robotic surgical or are there any listed here that I may talk with. Thank you?

Fibroids: I think that fibroids is what you're talking. They are little muscular tumors in the wall of a woman's uterus. They can be removed by a surgeon or GYN surgeon or they may opt for removal of the uterus all together. Just ask the surgeons in your area if they use surgical robots. Personally, I would be more concerned about a surgeon's reputation than his robot. Good luck :) ...Read more

I'm a patient with fibroids according to my obgyn, and surgery is required, are there any tips and knowledge I should be aware of before?

All of the above factors play a critical part in what your surgical experience will be so talk to your surgeon and find out. ...Read more

In your experience as a health expert. What have you learned are the pros and cons of drinking coffee ?

Conflicting studies: There have been many research studies on the health effects of coffee with very conflicting results- some find it may be harmful, others find benefits. I believe large amounts of coffee are likely harmful but 1-2 cups a day is probably safe. People react variably but if you enjoy it use in moderation.
