Dr Kowalski is also the author of ‘Not Your Mother’s Hysterectomy’, a book which seeks to educate and empower women who are facing the often daunting prospect of having a hysterectomy. The book draws on Dr. Kowalski’s own extensive expertise in performing thousands of hysterectomies over the years, but is written in an easy to understand and engaging manner. Not Your Mother’s Hysterectomy is filled with answers to questions that patients need to know, as well as anecdotal and personal accounts of women who’ve undergone a hysterectomy. If you or a loved one is faced with having a hysterectomy, then Not Your Mother’s Hysterectomy is an excellent resource with which to educate yourself.
