Understanding Hysterectomy

A hysterectomy is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of the uterus. It may be recommended for various medical conditions, such as uterine fibroids, endometriosis, chronic pelvic pain, abnormal bleeding, or gynecological cancers. Hysterectomy can be performed through different surgical approaches, including open surgery and laparoscopic (minimally invasive) techniques.

Qualification and Consultation

Before undergoing a hysterectomy, patients will have a thorough consultation with our experienced gynecologists. During this consultation, the surgeon will review the patient’s medical history, symptoms, and diagnostic tests to determine the most appropriate surgical approach and ensure that hysterectomy is the best treatment option.

Types of Hysterectomy

There are several types of hysterectomy procedures based on the extent of the surgery:

  • Total Hysterectomy: Removal of the entire uterus, including the cervix.
  • Subtotal (Partial) Hysterectomy: Removal of the upper part of the uterus, leaving the cervix in place.
  • Radical Hysterectomy: Removal of the uterus, cervix, part of the vagina, and surrounding tissues, typically performed for cancer treatment.

Surgical ApproachesHysterectomy can be performed using different surgical approaches:

Open Hysterectomy:

  • Procedure: An open hysterectomy, also known as an abdominal hysterectomy, involves making a larger incision in the lower abdomen to access and remove the uterus.
  • Indications: This approach is often used for larger uteri, extensive disease, or when other pelvic structures need to be assessed and possibly treated.
  • Recovery: Patients typically stay in the hospital for a few days after surgery and may need several weeks to fully recover.

Laparoscopic Hysterectomy:

  • Procedure: A laparoscopic hysterectomy involves making several small incisions in the abdomen through which a laparoscope (a thin, lighted tube with a camera) and surgical instruments are inserted to perform the surgery.
  • Advantages: This minimally invasive approach usually results in less pain, smaller scars, shorter hospital stays, and faster recovery compared to open surgery.
  • Recovery: Most patients can go home the same day or the day after surgery and return to normal activities within a few weeks.

Recovery and Post-Operative CareAfter a hysterectomy, patients will receive detailed post-operative care instructions to promote healing and manage any discomfort. Recovery time varies depending on the surgical approach and individual patient factors, but our team at Neo TrueNorth will provide comprehensive support throughout the recovery process to ensure optimal outcomes.
