I came to DR Groves with serious painful periods. He gave me several options and I ultimately decided on a hysterectomy. I had the surgery yesterday and he was awesome. Although I have been in some pain that is to be expected. And the nurses here at Sentara Leigh are so great!!!! They have made me comfortable. What a great team.

I went to this doctor after having a lot of issues with ovarian cysts. I also had a history of painful pelvic exams (mainly because doctors before chose to use a speculum that was too large for me). Dr. Groves was sensitive to my situation and he did not hurt me. He chose the proper sized speculum for a virgin and was very caring and gentle. I'd recommend him to anyone.

It's never an easy decision to have surgery. But then a transvaginal ultrasound revealed I had an 8-9 cm pedunculated subserosal fibroid on the fundus of my uterus & I knew something had to be done. My OBGYN recommended a myomectomy & sent me to meet with Dr. Groves that same week. We discussed my options & he advised me of the da Vinci procedure. Dr. Groves assured me of his competence in removal of fibroids via this method & his confidence in its ability to preserve fertility, which is extremely important to me because Im 29 & looking to start a family soon. We scheduled a laparoscopic myomectomy; however, my partner & I felt it wise to get a second opinion. That doctor also agreed the fibroid should be removed so I continued my research into the da Vinci procedure & myomectomies via the internet as I awaited my surgery. My pre-op visit was mainly a Q&A session with Dr. Groves, urine test & blood draw to make sure I was healthy. Everything came back normal & I worried myself to death in the following 4 weeks. The day before surgery, I did a light prep with Miralax instead of their standard bowel prep because I have ulcerative colitis & did not want to induce a flare but also wanted to comply with all requirements to reduce infection risk. On the day of surgery, my mother & I arrived at the hospital at 6:30AM. I was admitted & we were escorted to outpatient surgery. A nurse called me back, took my weight & provided me with a cup for a urine sample to do a pregnancy test, a hospital gown & compression stockings, then started my IV. My mother was brought back into the room and after a short period of time, Dr. Groves came in along with the Anesthesiologist. Dr. Groves made me feel calm about the procedure & the entire medical team was very confident. About 15 minutes after their departure, a CRNA & surgical assistant came in, started antibiotics and a sedative in my IV, and wheeled me off to the OR. I barely remember anything after coming into that room except there were a lot of people & I was assisted in moving from my bed to another table. The general anesthesia I was given was Propofol & I was in surgery for about 1.5 hours. I woke up in the post op area with 4 incisions (2 on the right, 1 navel & 1 larger exit on the left). As I regained full consciousness, a nurse administered Morphine by IV & graduated me from ice chips to water & saltines to induce belly sounds. I was there for a few hours before my discharge nurse took me to my post OP room. I was given gram crackers and ginger ale (I was so hungry!), a Percocet (which reduced my pain to about a 4) & my mom came back into the room. We were given discharge instructions & after some time, I went by wheelchair to the car at about 3 PM. Overall, I was in much less pain than I ever expected & I am healing at a remarkable rate, which I attribute not only to the expertise of my surgical team but also da Vinci robotics. Of course, for the first few days I had to take Percocet on a regular schedule (I started my period 2 days post OP & caught a cold from my mom at 3 days post OP), but after I began taking extra strength Tylenol. It was difficult to move and walk but today, I had my two week post op visit & I feel GREAT. My incisions are healing beautifully; I no longer require pain meds & can gradually move back into my normal routine. Best of all, no more FIBROID! All thanks to da Vinci & Dr. Groves. I am eternally grateful & looking forward to continuing my journey to motherhood.
