"I enjoy the private practice of obstetrics and gynecology because of the opportunity to develop long-term, health-promoting relationships with my patients over the years. My special areas of interest include reproductive genetics, menopause, abnormal PAP smears, pediatric and adolescent gynecology, and laparoscopic surgery, including laparoscopic hysterectomy. I consider myself an advocate for women, children, and the family, and thoroughly enjoy the challenges of being the father of four children, including a set of triplets. I do not perform pregnancy terminations."

Podcast Summary

New advances in minimally invasive gynecologic surgery have made common procedures for women, such as hysterectomy and myomectomy, easier to recover from with smaller incisions, less bleeding and scarring, and a shorter hospital stay.

Dr. Gerardo Bustillo explains how, with the precision of the robotic surgical system and a skilled gynecologic surgeon, there are more options than ever before if you need to have one of these procedures performed.
