Johns Hopkins releases new restrictions on morcellation
from The Legal Examiner
Amidst concerns that power morcellators used during certain gynecological surgeries could potentially lead to serious cancer diagnoses, Johns Hopkins University has announced that they will no longer use the power tools or certain surgeries in postmenopausal women. According to Oncology Practice, the University made the announcement in December 2014, stating that they had developed a new safety protocol surrounding power morcellation, to protect women going through minimally invasive surgeries.
