Promoting a More Effective, Less Costly Procedure

Doctors circling a patient

Guidelines from the American College and Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommend vaginal hysterectomy (VH) as the preferred treatment for benign gynecological disease. However, analyses using PROMETHEUS Analytics found that rates of alternative procedures, which have higher prices and greater risk of severe complications, consistently exceed that of VH, sometimes by 50% or more. This insight opens a significant opportunity to reduce costs and patient harm by switching to the more clinically recommended treatment.
