Laparoscopic Hysterectomy utilizes the latest minimally invasive surgical techniques to remove the uterus through small (lcm) abdominal incisions. This procedure is indicated for heavy and irregular menstruation unresponsive to medical management, symptomatic fibroids, or pelvic pain from endometriosis/adenomosis or pelvic adhesive disease.

In the Laparoscopic Supracervical Hysterectomy or LSH, the uterus is excised laparoscopically and removed leaving a portion of the cervix behind. A special device, called a morcellator is utilized to cut the uterine specimen into strips that are removed through a one-half inch diameter incision. The cervix is left in place to maintain sexual sensation and fuction. It also serves as a prevention for future pelvic floor or vaginal apex prolapse. The procedure requires general anesthesia with a hospital stay either as same day surgery or overnight. There is usually less blood loss and less post-operative pain than traditional abdominal or vaginal hysterectomy. Recovery before returning to work is usually 10 days to 2 weeks.

Hysteroscopy is the use of a telescope-like instrument with a video camera to visually inspect the lining of the uterus (endometrium). It is commonly used to diagnose problems of the lining uterus including endometrial polyps, submucosal uterine fibroids, and uterine anomalies.

Operative hysteroscopy requires general or regional anesthesia and can be performed as an outpatient procedure.

Common Questions About a Hysterectomy

If you or someone you love is facing a possible hysterectomy, it’s essential that you learn as much about it as you can. If you need to make a decision about whether or not to have a hysterectomy then this information can be very helpful to you. If your doctor has already told you that a hysterectomy is mandatory, the next stage is to gather as much information as possible.

It’s perfectly normal for you to have a lot of questions regarding a hysterectomy. Here are some of the most common questions about a hysterectomy and the answers that you need to know:

What types of hysterectomies are there?
There are actually several types of hysterectomies. These include complete/total, partial/subtotal and radical. A complete hysterectomy removes the cervix as well as the uterus. This is the most common type. A partial hysterectomy removes the upper part of the uterus and not the cervix. A radical hysterectomy is often needed in some forms of cancer and this remove the uterus, the cervix as well as the upper part of the vagina and the supporting tissues.
Will I still have a period after a hysterectomy?
Yes. If you have not already stopped your periods due to menopause, the hysterectomy will end them.
Can I get pregnant after a hysterectomy?
No. Just as the surgery stops your menstruation, it will prevent you from being able to become pregnant.
Why do women have hysterectomies?
There are actually several reasons why someone might need to have a hysterectomy. Some reasons include endometriosis, uterine prolapse, fibroids, cancer, chronic severe pelvic pain and persistent vaginal bleeding.
Will I be happy after I have a hysterectomy?
The highest probability is that you will forget that you had a hysterectomy because your uterus will no longer be a source of pain or pressure or bleeding or cancer. Because I only do hysterectomies on women who will, based on medical evidence and feminist principles, benefit from them, my patients are healthier after their surgery than they were before. Ask any of them. Quality of life: do you deserve it? Hysterectomy causes short-term morbidity, but appears to increase average life expectancy slightly among perimenopausal women and is cost saving. Medical outcomes and economic consequences favor the procedure. Research on women undergoing hysterectomy shows that 78% are symptom free after their operation, and another 14% have reduced symptoms, while 8% have new symptoms. Fully 95% report that they were pleased with their HRT or it exceeded expectations 5% reported not liking their HRT because for some it contained testosterone. Physical well-being was improved in 80% and unchanged in 15% and worse in 4.6%. 32% noted less depression than before the surgery, while 65% had no depression, and 4% became more depressed. Overall, 3% were dissatisfied. Satisfaction was associated with understanding the need for the surgery, a positive outlook, removal of the ovaries, taking HRT for at least the short-term, complete symptom relief, a quick recovery, improved physical well-being, and the absence of depression.
If your doctor tells you that you need a hysterectomy, they will go over all the possible risks involved as well as all the important aftercare instructions so that you can be completely prepared for what will happen. If you have any questions at all, it’s important to get these out in the beginning. Your doctor should make you feel as comfortable as possible with the procedure.
