"Dr Villella is a keeper. I feel blessed having her as my doctor. She is an excellent surgeon and a caring and compassionate doctor. I highly recommend her and her team. When I was diagnosed with endometrial cancer I was frightened by the diagnosis and the uncertainty of it all. She performed advance laparoscopic robotic assisted total hysterectomy, bilateral saplings-oopherectomy, pelvic and paraaortic lymphadenectomy an extensive lysis of adhesion. Still I was able to go home the next day. I was also able to walk freely and my pain level was minimal. The first day I took Percocet twice and the following days I took plain Tylenol . Iimpressive considering the surgery and my age-84. Follow-up visits with Dr. Villella are great-- she is thorough, caring and compassionate and so is her staff. Dr. Villella, her staff and the staff at Lenox Hill Hospital gave me hope and made me feel safe."
