While a Laparoscopic hysterectomy has various advantages and it is advised that you consult your surgeon to make sure it is right for you. 

Types Of Laparoscopic Hysterectomy

Depending on your medical history, and severity of the condition, the uterus may be removed completely or partially. In some cases, the cervix, ovaries or fallopian tubes may be either retained or removed.

Total Hysterectomy

  • A total hysterectomy implies that the entire uterus is removed through small incisions in the abdomen.

Hysterectomy with Removal of Ovaries

  • In this type of surgery, the uterus, ovaries as well as fallopian tubes are removed. The organs may be removed through small incisions in the abdomen.

Laparoscopic Supracervical Hysterectomy (LSH)

  • In this particular procedure, only the top portion of the uterus is removed.
  • The cervix is left to stay and this procedure may be indicated if the cervix is healthy and uterine complications are the cause for removal.
  • The uterus is removed in pieces through small incisions in the abdomen.

Vaginal hysterectomy

  • This surgery is performed entirely through the vagina, with the aid of a laparoscope.
