You are likely seeing television commercials and Facebook ads about the power morcellator and hysterectomies being linked to spreading cancer.
This has been very upsetting to many of our members given the recent allegations coming out in many lawsuits that have been filed. These allegations state that the manufacturers of the power morcellator knew about the risks of spreading leiomyosarcoma, but chose corporate profits over human lives.
This month we are featuring information on the power morcellator to make sure anyone effected by it:
a) knows that this may have caused them harm; and
b) to spread awareness about the risks of undergoing a power morcellation procedure for removal of fibroids.
