Quotes from Dr. Gregory Marchand:

“Keep making the incisions smaller and fewer – the postoperative pain, recovery, and complications will follow.”

“I know what it’s like to face a diagnosis of cancer, and in my opinion, advancements in the surgical treatment of cancer are just as important as the newest cancer-fighting drugs and chemotherapy agents.”

“Wishing to ban surgical morcellation is exactly the same as wishing to ban all chemotherapy.  Both are excellent life saving tools with a very narrow indication. Outside that indication they are both equally deadly.”
