Surgical Services

Lucy Flatten and husband, Lou

I'm Lucy Flatten with my husband, Lou Flatten. We live in Tallmadge, Ohio. I had a minimally

 invasive hysterectomy at Summa in Akron. I was actually out of surgery and awake by about 1:00 in the afternoon. The next morning, I got dressed, and by noon I was ready to go home. Lou only got a little free time out of this. I had no pain at all. I didn't even need an aspirin for any of it

. It only took me a couple of weeks to really get back to complete normal. Lou was thrilled that he didn’t have to cook any meals or wash any clothes or run the vacuum cleaner or anything. I came back and started right up again. I don't have any big long scars on my stomach, either. It’s like little mosquito bites on my tummy, and that's it. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this type 

of surgery to anyone that I know. I had a very, very good experience at Summa.
