April 27, 2020 - With the COVID-19 situation stabilizing and beginning to show signs of improvement, Emory has reached a point where it is ready to start resuming medical services that were postponed over the last several weeks. Essential elective cases will be scheduled beginning next week. This includes all surgeries for fibroids, endometriosis, pelvic pain, abnormal uterine bleeding, ovarian cysts and other gynecologic conditions that are impacting one's quality of life or activities of daily living.
April 5, 2020 - Over the weekend, the Chief of Surgery, Emory Saint Joseph’s Hospital, informed Dr. Randell that elective cases continue to be postponed, but certain cases that Dr. Randell's patients may need to be performed will be considered and scheduled accordingly. Please contact us if you need to have your surgery now because of severe symptoms such as pain or heavy bleeding.
April 3, 2020 - While elective surgeries have been postponed indefinitely during the COVID-19 pandemic, emergent, urgent, and time-sensitive cases are being performed. Today, Dr. Randell and his O.R. team performed an outpatient minimally invasive robotic hysterectomy at Emory Saint Joseph's Hospital on a patient with a very large uterus that was obstructing her ureter and causing damage to one of her kidneys. The patient will be donating a kidney to her father, so it was necessary to perform the surgery to prevent irreversible injury to her kidney. The surgery went very well and the patient is home. All CDC guidelines were followed to protect the patient and the operating room team. We continue to be available to our patients during this time for emergent, urgent, and time-sensitive care.
March 30, 2020 - All elective and time-sensitive surgeries at Emory Saint Joseph's Hospital have been postponed until April 10, 2020. This will be reassessed on April 2, 2020.
