Mt. Pleasant resident and a retired school principal Pam Sroufe was very happy with her decision to have a Laparoscopic Supracervical Hysterectomy (LSH).

"LSH was the way to go," shared Pam.   "There were no complications and I was home in under 24 hours. I only missed a week of work and after about a month, I felt completely back to normal.  I was even going on walks during the week of my recovery."

Not only was the surgery less invasive, but the experience at McLaren Central Michigan also impressed Pam.

"From the moment I checked in before my procedure to my recovery afterwards, the staff at McLaren Central Michigan was incredible, " said Pam. "The volunteer at the surgical desk was great and the nurses in surgery really added the human connection. I felt like I was a person. In fact, the nurses were cheering for me after it was over. Staff members came over to talk with me as they took my blood pressure and temperature, and the chit-chat was always appropriate."

"I felt like my life wasn't interrupted at all," said Pam.
