Hysterectomy is the surgery to remove the uterus (the womb).
It is a major gynecological surgery and the second most frequently performed surgery for women in the world. This is simply because as a woman ages and nears her menopause, the uterus tends to develop a number of uterine-related health issues, such as extensive vaginal bleeding, unbearable abdominal pain, blackouts, nausea, constant fatigue, and weakness. Most often, the reason is the development of uterine fibroids or in rarer cases- the change in the shape and size of the uterus.
In some women, the uterus rather falls down from its original position and causes difficulty in urination and defecation along with repeated urinary tract infections. This is called uterine prolapse.
At either of these times, hysterectomy, that is, the removal of the uterus becomes essential. It provides the final and definite solution to uterine conditions and promises immediate relief.
(Note, hysterectomy is also performed as a final solution to endometriosis and is a fairly common and safe surgery. However, it invariably ends your biological capacity to birth a child. Therefore, if you desire further childbirth, we suggest you consult more than 1 doctor and assess all alternative treatment options.)

Hysterectomy Surgery Types
Hysterectomy can typically be performed in three ways:
Here, your gynecologist makes an open cut incision in your lower abdomen and manually removes the uterus. The site is then closed with self-dissolving sutures and substantial recovery can be expected in 5-6 weeks.
This method is particularly performed only in cases of uterine prolapse. Here, your gynecologist removes the already prolapsing uterus from the vaginal route. Post excision, fine absorbable sutures are made close to the surgical site. The procedure is comparatively simpler to abdominal hysterectomy and substantial recovery can be expected in 1-2 weeks.
Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy (TLH):
Here, the uterus removal is performed using an advanced medical tool- laparoscope, that is, a tiny, specialized catheter with a camera and light on its end.
Hysterectomy Surgery Procedure
First, your gynecologist makes 4-5 keyhole-sized ports in your lower abdomen and inserts a laparoscope. The laparoscope gives a magnified view of the otherwise smaller and narrower organs. It thus helps your surgeon achieve more precision with better clarity. The uterus and its supporting organs are then separated using ultrasonic energy to minimize blood loss.
Once separated, the uterus is removed through the vaginal route. While most of the laparoscopic keyholes (lesser than half an inch) heal by themselves, the one keyhole larger than 1 cm, is closed with a suture. Few sutures are also made at the birth canal route. However, they are very few in comparison to abdominal hysterectomy and recovery can be expected within 1-2 weeks.

Typically, vaginal hysterectomy is considered the best method of hysterectomy (uterus removal). However, it can be performed conventionally only in the cases of uterine prolapse. When the surgery is suggested for any other reason such as fibroids, heavy periods, or endometriosis, total laparoscopic hysterectomy (TLH) is the most advanced and minimally invasive method. This too removes the uterus through the vaginal route by using laparoscopic instruments. It is particularly famous for its minimal incision, better precision, lesser blood loss, quicker discharge, and faster recovery.
Uterus removal surgery (hysterectomy) typically costs anywhere between INR 40,000 to INR 70,000 in Visakhapatnam. This cost varies based on the method of surgery you choose (conventional or laparoscopic ), choice of hospital, and the experience of the operating surgeon. As a rule of thumb, the more advanced the surgery type and the more experienced your doctor, the higher are the charges of the treatment.

Yes. Hysterectomy is a major surgery performed only under acute medical necessity. Therefore, most insurance providers cover its cost under insurance. However, if it is a case of reimbursement, please check with if the said hospital is on your SGHS/ CGHS/ or company panel. Please feel free to discuss the same with our doctors/ medical coordinators.
Uterus removal surgery is a slightly delicate procedure and may take anywhere between 1-3 hours. This time varies on your individual health condition, type of surgery, method of surgery, and surgeon’s past experience.
Uterus removal, that is, hysterectomy is a major surgery that demands substantial bed rest and healing time. While a good recovery can be expected only after 5-6 weeks in cases of conventional hysterectomy, this time reduces to 1-2 weeks in case of laparoscopic hysterectomy.
No. The uterus removal itself does not have any major side effects. In fact, it would resolve the intense pain and bleeding you were feeling otherwise and the body would slowly adjust to the changed anatomy. However, if the surgery is performed wrong or any other internal complications are discovered, it may result in-
Yes, you can very well have and enjoy sex despite a hysterectomy. The surgery only removes the uterus. The desire to have sex is rather stimulated by hormones produced in the ovaries and enjoyed through the sensations registered in the vaginal tract and walls. Since neither of them is affected in the hysterectomy, the surgery does not restrict your sex life. However, do wait for 1-1.5 months before engaging in penetrative sex. This time period would allow you to properly heal through the physical pain, as well as emotional and mental changes.
