“The procedure took about five minutes, and my problem was solved. It’s been the best thing ever.”
Katy Rossi was 30 years old when she first came to see Dr. Evelyn Torres. “My experience with Dr. Torres and Southdale Ob/Gyn has been nothing but wonderful,” she says. “And that’s pretty good for 20 years!”
Over the years, Dr. Torres has seen Katy through the births of two of her three children, and, most recently, the challenge of excessive menstrual bleeding. Says Katy: “It got to be where I didn’t want to leave the house. By the end of the day, I’d feel like I’d run a marathon, and I hadn’t done a thing.”
Dr. Torres recommended a NovaSure® endometrial ablation procedure for Katy, through which the patient’s uterine lining is removed without a need for incisions, hospitalization or general anesthesia. “The procedure literally took about five minutes, and my problem was solved,” says Katy. “It’s been the best thing ever.
“Dr. Torres always listens and trusts what I’m saying to her. We’re about the same age, so we’ve gone through life experiences at the same time, like having our kids and even our first mammogram! It’s been fun to sort of grow up together.”
