A hysterectomy is a surgery in which at least part of the uterus is removed. In a subtotal (supracervical) hysterectomy, the upper portion of the uterus is removed.
While ovary removal is technically not part of the hysterectomy, the surgeon may perform an ovary removal procedure (an oophorectomy) at the same time as the hysterectomy.
This leaves the cervix intact. The more common type of hysterectomy is a total hysterectomy, in which the entire uterus and cervix are removed. In a radical hysterectomy, the entire uterus is removed, along with the cervix and the upper part of the vagina. This kind of hysterectomy is reserved for cases of cancer.
A laparoscopic or robotic hysterectomy is a minimally invasive surgery in which the surgeon uses very small incisions in the abdomen to perform the hysterectomy. During the surgery, the doctor is able to clearly view the surgical area on a monitor. The incisions needed for a laparoscopic or robotic hysterectomy are much smaller than that required for an open hysterectomy and thus patients usually go home the same day, with minimal downtime and recovery. Patients also tend to heal more rapidly and have less bleeding compared to an open hysterectomy.
Some surgeons, such as those at Urogyn Specialists of Florida ,are proficient in all forms of hysterectomy including the open technique. These include a pain block as a part of their surgical technique which enables patients to go home the same day with minimal or no pain!
In a vaginal hysterectomy, the uterus is removed through the vagina. An incision is made to allow the uterus to be safely removed.
An open hysterectomy is a traditional hysterectomy in which the surgeon removes the uterus through an abdominal incision. Some patients require an abdominal hysterectomy as opposed to a laparoscopic or a vaginal hysterectomy. This includes women who have a large uterus or other physical conditions that prohibit other types of hysterectomies.
There are several different reasons that a woman may need a hysterectomy, such as uterine fibroids that cause severe symptoms, uterine prolapse, endometriosis, and reproductive system cancers are all leading reasons for hysterectomy.
