Dr. Robert Brown, a urogynecologist with Alabama UROGYN, recently performed the first vNotes hysterectomy in Alabama at Thomas Hospital. In addition to being the first procedure in Alabama, it is the first in the Gulf Coast region, including Mississippi and the Florida panhandle.
vNOTES (vaginal Natural Orifice Trans Endoscopic Surgery) is a scarless surgery, whereby the physician can perform a hysterectomy, oophorectomy, salpingectomy, and other indicated procedures. The patient benefits include faster surgery, shorter length of hospital stay, less post-operation pain, less pain medication, and quicker return to normal activities.

vNOTES is made possible through the use of Applied Medical’s Gel point v Path. Fairhope area physicians, Dr. Robert Brown and Dr. Angela McCool-Pearson are trained to perform vNOTES. To schedule a consultation, contact Alabama UROGYN at (251) 433-1895 (Option 2) or Southern Women Specialists at (251)990-1985.
