Laparoscopic Hysterectomy

What is Hysterectomy?

Hysterectomy is a surgical procedure involving the removal of a woman's uterus, often performed to treat various gynecological conditions. It can be total, involving the removal of the entire uterus, or subtotal, preserving the cervix.

For which indication is Hysterectomy recommended?

Uterine fibroids, endometriosis, uterine or cervical cancers, persistent uterine bleeding or uterine prolapse.

What are the risks of delaying or ignoring Hysterectomy if its suggested by the Doctor?

In cases of non-cancerous conditions like uterine fibroids, delaying a hysterectomy may lead to complications such as anemia due to prolonged heavy bleeding or increased discomfort and pain. Also there is a chance that these benign growth may become cancerous in the future.

If the Hysterectomy has been indicated because of Cancer or Tumor, there is a risk of the Cancer spreading to other parts of the body

How is a hysterectomy performed?

Hysterectomies can be performed through various methods, including open surgery (an incision in the abdomen), laparoscopic surgery (small incisions with the assistance of a laparoscope) and vaginal surgery (through the vagina)
