Easing Uterus Removal with Laparoscopic Hysterectomy

A laparoscopic hysterectomy is an invasive surgical process to remove the uterus. This surgical process is recommended to the women patients who are unable to treat abnormal uterine bleeding or fibroids. In this process, a tiny incision is made in the belly button to insert a tiny camera. This camera helps doctor to watch the inside images on the screen and complete operation process. In the lower abdomen, 2-3 other small incision also made to monitor the process from different angles. Other specialized instruments are also inserted to help the removal process.

There are two types of laparoscopic hysterectomy. Laparoscopic supra-cervical hysterectomy keeps the cervix in place and Total laparoscopic hysterectomy removes the whole cervix and uterus. The operation of keeping cervix in place is little safer and faster. But if the patient have a history of cancerous changes in the uterus or cervix lining then it is advisable to remove whole uterus. In the other case, if the operation is performed for pelvic pain or endometriosis then it is advisable to remove cervix to reduce the chances of severe pain after the operation.

A laparoscopic hysterectomy has many advantages.

  • It requires few small incisions
  • Low risk of blood loss
  • Less scarring
  • Low post-operative pain
  • An outpatient procedure
