Compare preparedness for total laparoscopic hysterectomies between patients who undergo virtual visits and those who undergo in-office visits for pre-operative counseling.


The proposed research study looks to evaluate the effectiveness of combination of video counseling and virtual visits for pre-operative counseling as compared to in-office pre-operative counseling visits ahead of total laparoscopic hysterectomy surgery. Comparison of the two cohorts will be based on responses to surveys regarding patient preparedness on the day of surgery and information obtained from the electronic medical record.
