About Hysterectomy

Uterus removal surgery or Hysterectomy is the surgical procedure to remove a part (partial hysterectomy) or the entire uterus (total hysterectomy). It is often recommended as a permanent solution for numerous gynecological problems like ovarian cysts, fibroids, uterine prolapse or severe pelvic inflammatory diseases, etc. However, the removal of the uterus implies that a woman cannot get pregnant after the surgery. The patient should discuss alternative treatments to this operation if she has plans for a future pregnancy. Hysterectomy is always a final solution, but it might be the only option in conditions like treating uterine, endometrial, and ovarian cancers, removal of uterine fibroids and chronic pelvic pain or heavy bleeding.

There are different types of hysterectomy. The operation will depend upon the patient’s condition and the type of hysterectomy being performed. Gynecologists at Pristyn Care perform laparoscopic hysterectomy with minimum risks and bleeding. General or local anesthesia is administered during the procedure, so the patient is either asleep or the sight of surgery is numb, which makes the operation painless.

The surgeon will then remove the uterus through an incision in either abdomen or vagina. The method of hysterectomy performed depends on why the patient needs the surgery and the results of the pelvic exam.

During a vaginal hysterectomy, some surgeons use a laparoscope called laparoscopically assisted vaginal hysterectomy or LAVH to assist them in viewing the uterus and performing the surgery.

  • A laparoscope with advanced instruments can also be used to perform hysterectomy completely through tiny keyhole incisions
  • this is called total or supracervical laparoscopic hysterectomy. In more complex cases, surgeons may employ the assistance of robotic instruments placed through the laparoscope to complete the laparoscopic hysterectomy (robotic-assisted laparoscopic hysterectomy).
