Hysterectomy Surgery from miVIP

An Unmatched Commitment to Women’s Health

During a hysterectomy surgery, the uterus is removed from a woman’s body. A hysterectomy is performed for a variety of reasons and can provide relief and treatment for cancer, endometriosis, abnormal bleeding and fibroid tumors.

Depending on the severity of the patient’s condition, a hysterectomy may involve the removal of other reproductive organs such as the ovaries, the fallopian tubes or the cervix. A hysterectomy may lower the risks of breast and ovarian cancer, but may send younger women into premature menopause and increase the risks of osteoporosis and heart disease. A hysterectomy surgery eliminates any chance of becoming pregnant, and is something to discuss in-depth with a doctor.

How a Hysterectomy is Performed

The reproductive system is complex, making it necessary for surgeons to access the organs in one of several ways.

  • An abdominal hysterectomy is typical for women with severe endometriosis, cancer or a large uterus. The surgeon makes an incision across the abdomen to remove the cervix and the uterus. If there is even a small chance of cancer in the ovaries, cervix or uterus, an abdominal hysterectomy is performed.
  • A vaginal hysterectomy is used for those with a small uterus that is easy to remove. The uterus is removed through the vagina.
  • A laparoscopically assisted vaginal hysterectomy allows the surgeon to remove the uterus through the vagina with the help of a small camera and light.
  • A laparoscopic supracervical hysterectomy allows the surgeon to remove the uterus in pieces through the stomach with the help of a lighted tube.
  • A total laparoscopic hysterectomy allows the surgeon to make small incisions in the abdomen and remove the cervix and uterus in small pieces through the incisions.

Recovery from a Hysterectomy

With our minimally invasive laparoscopic hysterectomy procedures, you may be able to return home several hours after your surgery, with pain medications and instructions from your doctor. You are encouraged to move lightly around, get plenty of rest and decrease your level of activity until you are completely healed. Sexual intercourse and strenuous activity are restricted for 6-8 weeks after the procedure.

After a hysterectomy surgery, vaginal discharge and bleeding is normal for several days or even weeks. If you feel your bleeding is heavy compared to a normal period, call your surgeon immediately.

Surgical Costs

Each patient is unique, and the costs for your procedure are also. We offer free benefit consultations with our patient advocates to help you determine what you are responsible for financially after your procedure.

Long Term Changes in Your Life

After a hysterectomy surgery, you will no longer have monthly menstrual periods and may start menopause at an earlier age. You may notice some sadness or grief regarding fertility loss, and all concerns should be addressed with your surgeon before the procedure is performed.
