COMPLETE LAPAROSCOPIC HYSTERECTOMY Once the uterus is free within the abdominal-pelvic cavity it can be removed in a variety of ways: --in one piece through the vagina --morcellated through the vagina --morcellated laparoscopically The vagina may be closed transvaginally or laparoscopically
MINIMALLY INVASIVE HYSTERECTOMY ACOG and entire body of available literature concur-- Recognized superiority of minimally invasive hysterectomy, whether vaginal or laparoscopic, over traditional total abdominal hysterectomy with faster recovery, less post-operative pain, improved cosmetic appearance and similar complication rates. ACOG Committee Opinion 388, November 2007 So… every hysterectomy should be MIS, Right?

Patient care must be viewed in its totality to assure that all aspects are maximized
Variables such as cost reduction, revenue enhance, risk avoidance and patient satisfaction have to be quantified for all disease states, risks and benefits weighed and appropriate management must be determined
Through such an analysis outcomes can be maximized
The Two Kilo Club is an organization for the recognition of laparoscopic and minimally invasive skills and achievements, especially those that were previously thought to be "impossible." We recognize that difficult laparoscopic and minimally invasive surgery is not based solely on the size of the uterus, and that one particular surgical feat does not prove any particular surgeon to be especially adept. However, the Two Kilogram uterus is a significant challenge whether by vaginal or laparoscopic approach. Accordingly we use this as our standard and invite gynecologic surgeons to this challenge. We recognize the successful with membership and praise. Two Kilo Club
This list encompasses all surgeons who have successfully qualified to be counted among the ranks of the two kilo club by successfully removing a uterus weighing greater than 1999 grams without resorting to laparotomy. Member list is updated monthly. Surgeons may apply by submitting official documentation in order to be considered immediately. In addition, TKC staff performs regular literature searches of reliable sources and data collection agencies in order to attempt to compile a comprehensive list of all surgeons internationally who have accomplished this feat.
