I was a little worried before surgery as I had never had any major surgery. My experience was wonderful! I had very little discomfort immediately following surgery. Only 24 hours in the hospital! No need for pain medication after just a few days. It’s been a little over two weeks and I feel great.
After years of pain, I recently had da Vinci Robotic Hysterectomy and literally my life has changed! No more pain or missing out on 10-15 days a month of my life. Thank you Dr. Hayes & your wonderful staff for your exceptional skills, knowledge & for taking such good care of me. For anyone deciding whether or not to have this surgery like I was, maybe my experience can help your decision. The recovery was so much better then I could imagine. After the 1st few days, besides being a little sore & tired, I had to remind myself I had surgery. By the 2nd week, the incisions were so small you could barely see them. I can’t thank you enough Dr. Hayes.
Dr. Hayes gave me a robotic hystectomy in 2/2010. She removed my uterus and a cantaloupe sized fibroid. My recover was so quick. I stopped taking the pain meds after two days. I felt so great that I had to keep reminding myself to take it easy. Dr. Hayes and her staff are so caring and attentive my experience couldn’t have been better!
Robotic surgery is the way to go and Dr.Hayes is the one to do it. In 3 days I was up and about with minimal pain. Recovery was much faster than I imagined. So thankful I found Dr. Hayes and her wonderful staff.
I’m a 56 year-old post-menopausal women who recently had extensive bleeding with sexual intercourse. This had never happen before, and my husband and I were really scared. Since we are fairly recent “transplants” to Florida, I asked my primary care physician, who I trust completely, to recommend a gynecologist — someone who he would trust his wife to. He recommended Dr. Jennifer Hayes. I am so thrilled that he did so!
From the minute I walked into the office, the entire staff was so friendly and warm to me. Dr. Hayes told me upon examination that there were three things that could possibly be wrong with me, but she wouldn’t know precisely until further testing and biopsies were performed. She said that it could be benign uterine polyps, pre-cancerous cells, or cancer. If you have never heard the “C” word issued to you, it’s hard to imagine the thoughts that go through your mind. I have only been married for a year and a half (after many years of a miserable previous marriage) to the nicest, most lovable and sexiest man I’ve ever met (who’s seven years younger than I am), and I finally got my lovely daughter through college and married to a great husband, and now, I might die??? Dr. Hayes held my hands and told me that I’m not going anywhere. If it was uterine cancer, it was the easiest cancer to cure. But, she would have to do a D&C to get a biopsy of the massive amount of polyps in my uterus. Every member of her staff encouraged me not to worry I was in good hands. They all treated me like family.
I was absolutely terrified of surgery. Oh, I had the utmost confidence in Dr. Hayes, but I was terrified of being put to sleep. When I was 32, I had been given sodium pentothal as an anesthetic for a tubal ligation, and actually died on the operating table. It took a long time for them to “revive me”, and then I was horribly nauseated for two days after that. Dr. Hayes and her staff kept reassuring me that this would not happen again,
Fortunately, the results of the D&C showed that my polyps were benign. Dr. Hayes then told me that she could do a total hysterectomy using robotic surgery, which meant that my pain would be much less and my recovery would be much easier. She was right! Not only did she perform the robotic hysterectomy (including my ovaries), but she re-positioned my bladder to where it was before I had a 10 pound vaginal delivery of a baby girl 25 years ago, AND she tightened the muscles in my vagina to make sex more pleasurable. And, I woke up from the anesthesia starving to death instead of vomiting. I only had to spend one night in the hospital. I had had a male gynecologist for many years in Ohio prior to moving to Florida, and not once did he suggest that moving my bladder to eliminate leakage and tightening my vaginal muscles was possible. THANK YOU, DR. HAYES!
And, now, I keep reading these testimonials about the G-spot shot, so that’s the next thing I’m going to do!
I was diagnosed with a large pedunculated uterine fibroid. I was told by a Dr. that I would require surgery by means of a myomectomy but with a large 4-6 inch incision at the bikini line with a recovery of 6-8 weeks. I was then referred to Dr. Hayes by not one, but two of my very close girlfriends. When I first visited Visionary Centre for Women, I was amazed at how genuinely nice the entire staff was. Then after meeting with Dr. Hayes and receiving additional tests, I was informed of the robotic myomectomy which meant no big incision and a much shorter recovery time plus much, much less pain. After two weeks I was starting to feel my new self again and finally, I have preserved my reproductive system in the least traumatic way possible!. Dr. Hayes and staff are amazing.
Dr. Hayes and her entire staff make their patients feel so comfortable. The overall experience of learning you have to have a surgery can be very scary. Dr. Hayes listens closely and cares about her patients and their overall well-being. Dr. Hayes goes above and beyond for all of her patients. It is a unique and wonderful experience to have a Dr. who is truly there for her patients. To add to a positive experience–her staff is warm, welcoming, and they made me feel at ease as well. My overall experience was amazing. I was confident I was always in good hands, comfortable and well cared for. I recommend Dr. Hayes to every women I meet. Thank you all for the caring! It makes a huge difference especially for me.
Excellent Doctors! Most of us do not enjoy our annuals to say the least, but at this facility they are so kind and have the best bedside manner that it isn’t so bad. It is quick and pain free. I also had to have surgery for a large fibroid. Dr Hayes was wonderful. I highly recommend this woman’s clinic!
