What is Hysterectomy?

Hysterectomy is defined as the process of removal of the uterus by a surgical method. In very simple language, Hysterectomy is the removal process of a female womb. The womb is the organ that is found in the lower part of the female body. The surgery may usually involve the removal of overall organs of the reproductive system which a female body comprises. The organs may include ovaries, cervix, fallopian tubes and other surrounding parts inside the uterus. Due to functional abnormalities, surgery is the best possible option. The main function of the uterus is to help the embryo (i.e., early fetus) to grow inside the womb.

Treatment

Diagnosis

An expert doctor will evaluate and diagnose whether the patient is physically fit for the surgery or not? That can be done by asking about the medical history, and other illnesses a patient may have. After that, they may ask for a pelvic examination, pap smear, and conduct a thorough diagnosis before proceeding with a hysterectomy. A patient may need to get the tests done to check for cancer. They may include:

  • Cervical cytology (Pap Smear test)- To help detect the presence of abnormal cervical cells
  • Endometrial biopsy- To help detect abnormal cells in the uterine lining
  • Pelvic ultrasound- To see the size of uterine fibroids, endometrial polyps or ovarian cysts

Surgery

After a diagnosis by an experienced surgeon, the patient accordingly proceeds with the operation. The advanced surgical procedure involves removal of the uterus through the abdomen by taking a very low bikini incision using the laparoscope. The daycare treatment involves fewer cuts or incisions, no scarring, no pain, and a faster recovery. There are two procedures for hysterectomy using modern procedures, the same are listed below:

  • Laparoscopic Hysterectomy- This procedure involves the incision with a laparoscope and vaginal incision, excision of cervical tissues transvaginally.
  • Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy- The entire operation is performed using a laparoscope and afterwards, a surgical specimen is removed via the vagina.

Why Is Hysterectomy Necessary?

Hysterectomy becomes necessary in severe cases of uterus related medical conditions that cannot be cured by oral medications or hormone therapy. Thus, gynecologists recommend uterus removal surgery for severe conditions of uterine fibroids, endometriosis, uterine polyps, uterine prolapse, hyperplasia, and ovarian cysts. 

These conditions cause heavy menstrual bleeding, irregular periods, severe abdominal cramps, swollen belly, etc. If left unattended for a long time, these conditions worsen with time and also increase the risk of other health complications like anemia, urinary and pregnancy related problems. So, one should not delay hysterectomy if their gynecologist advises them to undergo the procedure.
