Tennille Daly: Minimally invasive myomectomy

Thanks to a minimally invasive surgical procedure, Tennille and Marc Daly were able to welcome their daughter, Elise, into the world.

Thanks to a minimally invasive surgical procedure performed with the daVinci robotic surgical system, Jackson couple Tennille and Marc Daly were able to welcome their daughter, Elise, into the world.

Through a routine exam with Arthur Vendola, MD, Obstetrics/Gynecology, Tennille learned she had a large fibroid tumor in her uterus—unwelcome news for a newlywed who wanted to begin a family. But, Dr. Vendola determined that she was a candidate for da Vinci® robotic surgery – which can result in less pain and a shorter recovery time than traditional surgery.

“I had every confidence in Dr. Vendola, and I knew right away I wanted to continue in his care for the birth of my children,” Tennille said. ”I was back at work within two weeks, and now Marc and I are enjoying every day with Elise.”

When recovering from surgery or an injury, prepare your home by placing often-used objects within easy reach, and keep a hard-backed chair in every room so you can sit while doing daily tasks.
