I would of responded earlier but I was in the hospital having my surgery. I am in Houston. I had my OB/GYN and a general surgeon perform my surgery. They used a harmonic scalpel with laparascopy. I know the OB/GYN is of no use to you. But the surgeon's name is Dr. Lugo. I don't have a first name, sorry. He is in a practice with a Dr. Garza. I had my surgery at Columbia Clear Lake Hospital. You might could even call the hospital and find out what his office number is. The hospital's phone number is (281)332-2511 I believe. You can email me personally if you want. I will try to help in any way possible.

Big hugs, Jenny
