Hysterectomy is a way of treating problems that affect the uterus. Many conditions can be cured with hysterectomy. Because it is major surgery, you may want to explore other treatment options first. For conditions that have not responded to other treatments, a hysterectomy may be the best choice. You should be fully informed of all options before you decide.

Hysterectomy is the surgical removal of the uterus. It is the second most common type of major surgery performed on women of childbearing age (the most common is cesarean delivery). Hysterectomy may be done to treat many conditions that affect the uterus:

 

  • Uterine fibroids
  • Endometriosis
  • Pelvic support problems (such as uterine prolapse)
  • Abnormal uterine bleeding
  • Cancer
  • Chronic pelvic pain

Hysterectomy is major surgery, and as with any major surgery, it carries risks. For many of the problems listed previously, other treatments can be tried first. After hysterectomy, you no longer are able to become pregnant. Discuss all of the treatment options for your specific condition with your health care provider.

 

Robotic Laparoscopic Hysterectomies are less invasive than traditional surgery procedures.
