Laparoscopic Vaginal Subtotal Hysterectomy—An Overview
Hysterectomy is the surgical removal of the uterus, and sometimes other reproductive organs like the cervix. Laparoscope-assisted vaginal subtotal hysterectomy is just one of the different hysterectomy techniques.
- A subtotal, or supracervical, hysterectomy leaves the cervix in situ. This type of hysterectomy is advantageous because the surgery requires less time, and the patient loses less blood. However, it does not eliminate the risk of cervical cancer. You will still need to have regular pap smears after this surgery.
- Contrast this to a total hysterectomy in which the cervix is removed along with the uterus. This procedure eliminates the risk of contracting cervical cancer in the future.
- In a laparoscopic-assisted vaginal subtotal hysterectomy, the surgeon makes all the necessary cuts via laparoscopy (cameras and other instruments inserted through a tiny hole usually near the navel) and the uterus is then removed via the vagina.
- Your doctor may need to combine your subtotal vaginal hysterectomy with a sacrospinous ligament fixation to avoid ureteral damage.
- It is also possible to have a robot perform your laparoscopic vaginal subtotal hysterectomy in India. Da Vinci robotic hysterectomy surgery in India will shorten your stay in the hospital, reduce the risk of scarring and infections, and allow you a faster recovery time in comparison to a traditional hysterectomy.
