  • 3. What Is A Hysterectomy?
    • A hysterectomy is a surgical procedure whereby the uterus (womb) is removed. Hysterectomy is the most common non-obstetrical surgical procedure of women in the United States. Approximately 300 out of every 100,000 women will undergo a hysterectomy.

  • Vaginal Hysterectomy
    • During this procedure, the uterus is removed through the vagina. A vaginal hysterectomy is appropriate only for conditions such as uterine prolapse, endometrial hyperlapsia, or cervical dysplasia. The woman will need to have her legs raised up in a stirrup device throughout the procedure.

  • Total Abdominal Hysterectomy
    • This is the most common type of hysterectomy. During a total abdominal hysterectomy, the doctor removes the uterus, including the cervix. The scar may be horizontal or vertical, depending on the reason the procedure is performed, and the size of the area being treated.

  • Total Abdominal Hysterectomy Cont.
    • Total abdominal hysterectomy allows the whole abdomen and pelvis to be examined, which is an advantage in women with cancer or investigating growths of unclear cause.

  • Laparoscopy-assisted vaginal hysterectomy (LAVH)
    • (LAVH) is similar to the vaginal hysterectomy procedure described above, but it adds the use of a laparoscope. A laparoscope is a very thin viewing tube with a magnifying glass-like device at the end of it. Certain women would be best served by having laparoscopy used during vaginal hysterectomy because it allows the upper abdomen to be carefully inspected during surgery.
