ask: A list of Doctors with a high success rate of 2nd Myomectomy surgeries

By Anonymous

I would like the name of a highly rated/recommended Doctor/Surgeon, who specializes in 2nd myomectomies in NYC/Brooklyn area that also accepts HealthPlus.... Looking to get this surgery scheduled asap, thanks....

Your best place for this type of information would be to call HealthPlus for a list of surgeons in your specified area.

You can also find a surgeon based on specialty: http://www.facs.org/patienteducation/patient-resources/surgery/acsmember...

Lastly, ask your primary care physician for referrals and recommendations.

Once you have this list narrowed to a few surgeons, you can call this doctors' office and ask, "what is your recent record of successes and complications with this surgery?". You can read about their credentials (most of this information is online), and here is a list of credentials to look for: http://www.facs.org/public_info/yourhealth/findadoc.html.

Please let us know if you have any additional questions!
