Dr. West literally saved my life. I refused to have a hysterectomy, though I had been told by one doctor after the next that such was my only option since my late 30s. I had nearly 20 days of bleeding out of 30 each month! I was literally disabled from my periods and could not hold a full-time job. Yet, I was clinging to the hope that I could still have a child. At any rate, Dr. West saved my uterus and restored my life to normalcy: I was finally able to work a 40- hour week after I had the surgery. I will be forever grateful to this pioneer for women's rights! Informed consent. I highly recommend Dr. West.

Dr. Stanley T. West is one of the best physicians/surgeons that I have ever met. My five fibroids were detected by my gynecologist on May 27, 2008 and a hysterectomy was the suggested method for addressing this problem. I consulted a second opinion on June 3, 2008 which suggested a hysterectomy. On June 12, 2008, I consulted with Dr. West and he made it crytstal clear that I did not need a hysterectomy and that my fibroids could be removed safely and that I could return back to my normal routines. Well on July 18, 2008 at approximately 7:30 AM, Dr. West and his superb surgical team began the procedure for removing my five fibroids, tissue associated with adenomyosis and rebuilding my uterus. The procedure was completed at approximately 10:45 AM. All of this took place at St.Vincent's Catholic Medical Center in Manhattan, New York. My family members stayed at Miracle House in Time Square during my hospital stay. All of these amenities were arranged by Dr. West's caring and competent office staff. I walked out of St. Vincent's Medical Center on Sunday morning at 10:30 AM on July 20, 2008 unassisted . I never saw a wheelchair. I took very few drugs for pain. On April 21, 2008, I weighed 207 pounds. Today, April 8, 2009, I weigh 180 pounds. I do not have the intense pains or excessive bleeding that I use to have during my menses. I do not have the swollen ankles either. In fact, I take one milk thistle pill each day of my menses and it does a beautiful job of removing excess fluids from my body. Milk thistle is a great liver detoxifier and it has a track record for helping women with menstrual problems. Water retention used to be a major problem for me. It helped to account for my excess weight along with the fibroids. Today I feel great. It was a great joy going to New York last summer with my family and friends to interact with Dr. West. So many of my family, friends, colleagues and former professors know about his great work to humanity. I was able to relax after my surgery on July 18, 2008 and two follow up visits on July 28, 2008 and August 11, 2008. I returned to work on September 2, 2008 with no restrictions. As I stated earlier, Dr. Stanley T. West is one of the best physicians/surgeons that I have ever met. I hope God continues to give him the wisdom, knowledge, understanding, skill and will to make remarkable contributions to the field of reproductive medicine!!!!  nformed consent. I highly recommend Dr. West.

Dr. West gave me back life when I thought all hope was gone. In 2001 at the age of 30 I discovered that I had a fibroid the size of a basketball. I visited three doctors who told me that I needed a hysterectomy. I was so depressed and heartbroken. I had been married for a year and wanted children. One day I was checking the internet trying to find another doctor and I came across Dr. West's site. I had surgery in November 2002, everything went extremely well, I could not believe that I no longer had that horrible fibroid and that I still had my uterus. In August 2003 I found out that I was pregnant and in April of 2004 I had a beautiful, healthy baby girl. I will forever be grateful to Dr. West.

I was 36 years old at the time of my surgery. I had been to my gynecologist, and he found that a fibroid I had had grown very large in size -- about the size of a canteloupe. I had an attempted myomectomy surgery, which was unsuccessful, because the doctor said he could not perform the surgery, that it was too involved - blood vessels, tangling, etc. He was going to send me to another doctor, but he knew the doctor would only tell me to get a hysterectomy also because of the seriousness of the fibroid. We have one wonderful child and wanted more, if possible. I began searching the internet and what did I happen upon but Dr. West's website. WHAT A GIFT FROM GOD! When you read the testimonials, you are totally blown away. TRUST ME, they are all true!!!! Dr. West is such a caring and wonderful man. He truly cares about his patients and wants you to fully understand everything. He drew everything out for me, just so I could understand things better. Dr. West is very patient, and NEVER makes you feel rushed about anything. I am from a small town in Alabama and was nervous about the trip. The ladies in his office are such a big help! They will help you with everything! My sister flew up with me, and I had the surgery. Dr. West also found additional fibroids nobody else had. He removed them all, and even some adhesions from prior surgeries for hopes of a future pregnancy! I was LITERALLY up and walking the halls early the next morning. Was able to fly home with NO PROBLEMS!!!! I even flew back to see him for my checkup, because I just really wanted him to perform the checkup. Dr. West is the most amazing doctor ever and just a super awesome man! He saved my fertility!!! If it wasn't for Dr. West, I would have had a hysterectomy -- no doubt! If you're thinking of seeing Dr. West, please don't hesitate to call him. I just can't stress enough -- if someone has told you you have to have a hysterectomy -- DON'T!!!!! Go see Dr. West. Once you have a hysterectomy, there is no undoing things. You will never regret seeing him! If anyone needs any help or has any questions, please do not hesitate to let me know . I will be glad to share my wonderful experience with you in more detail. THANK YOU SO MUCH DR. WEST!! WORDS CAN NEVER EXPRESS HOW MUCH YOU ARE APPRECIATED! GOD BLESS YOU!

One month ago I was strongly recommended to Dr West by a client. I immediately booked an appointment to see him. On appointment day I did not know what to expect because I knew I had three to four large fibroids inside me from previous consultations with other doctors. It was also suggested by them that that I should have a superficial hysterectomy performed. I was unhappy with this suggestion because it ruled out the opportunity of me having a child. However on my consultation with Dr West he highlighted there were other important issues which the other doctors did not raise with me. I was now faced with endometriosis, 19 fibroids (not 3-4) and clogged fallopian tubes - what a mess! However, Dr West still had a solution to my predicament and crucially the door was still ajar for me to have a child. Another concern I had was the effect of scarring and also the duration of the healing process - a particular worry due to my hectic business schedule. After my first consultation I felt I was in capable hands with Dr West because he had valid and convincing responses to all my concerns. I felt totally confident that he was the only doctor to satisfy all my demanding needs. He did not disappoint me. On the very same day of my surgery I even walked to the bathroom unaided. My scar is barely visible and despite an estimated two nights in the hospital I was even released a day early to my amazement. One week later I was in my high heels again - wow!
