Dr Higginbotham did my hysterectomy in 1997 and it's the best thing I ever did. He is an amazing Dr and I still sing his praises 21 years later.

I moved to Pittsburg, KS from Tulsa Oklahoma in 2015. I was 57 years old still having periods and horrible pain. Dr. Higginbotham suggested a total hysterectomy due to several cysts. My surgery went great and the after care was great his staff is exceptional and the doctor is so easy to talk to and explains things where I could totally understand. I wasn’t sure about a small town doctor that Dr. Higginbotham has exceeded my expectations in every way. He’s a true professional.

I had the DaVinci hysterectomy from Dr. Higginbotham. Either he or the machine severed a nerve. I will be in pain the remainder of my life. My existence is on Percocet and laying in bed. I have spent over $200,000 trying to find relief for my pain. I am in financial ruin. I have been to over 20 doctors and some of them multiple times. I would never recommend this doctor nor this procedure.
