Hysterectomy (removal of uterus) is one of the most common major surgical procedures performed in women. Laparoscopic hysterectomy is the most preferred way of performing hysterectomy nowadays. As opposed to open hysterectomy, it is related with less postoperative discomfort and morbidity, as well as speedier recovery and a shorter hospital stay.

What are the types of hysterectomy?

  • A partial hysterectomy, also known as supracervical hysterectomy, removes the uterus and leaves the cervix intact.
  • A total hysterectomy removes the uterus and cervix. In certain cases, one or both ovaries and fallopian tubes may be removed. Removal of both ovaries can result in premature menopause.
  • A radical hysterectomy removes the uterus, cervix and part of the vagina. The ovaries, fallopian tubes, and nearby lymph nodes may also be removed. This procedure may be necessary in certain cases of cancer.

What are the techniques to perform hysterectomy?

  • Open (abdominal) hysterectomy
  • Vaginal hysterectomy
  • Robotic hysterectomy
  • Laparoscopy assisted vaginal hysterectomy

Why is a Laparoscopic Hysterectomy better than an Open hysterectomy?

A laparoscopic hysterectomy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure to remove the uterus. A small incision is made in the belly button and a tiny camera is inserted. The surgeon watches the image from this camera on a TV screen and performs the operative procedure. Two or three other tiny incisions are made in the lower abdomen. Specialized instruments are inserted and used for the removal process.

What are the benefits of laparoscopic hysterectomy?

  • Considerably less pain post-surgery.
  • Minimum blood loss.
  • Fewer complications
  • Less scarring, as it requires only a few small incisions
  • The stay at the hospital is shorter
  • Faster return to normal day to day activities
  • There is a decreased risk of infection
  • Recovery period is 1-2 weeks, as compared to 4-6 weeks after an abdominal hysterectomy.

As there are only 4-5 keyhole sized incisions made on abdomen, post-operative pain is minimal. Due to small size of incision, recovery is also better and faster.

What can be expected during recovery phase after laparoscopic hysterectomy?

Patients should expect to take ibuprofen or narcotic pain pills for a few days post-operatively. We encourage patients NOT to stay in bed. They should move around the house and resume normal activities as soon as they feel up to it. Some women are well enough to return to work one week after surgery.
