3D Minimally Invasive technology
HYSTERECTOMIES PERFORMED WITH ONE INCISION ONLY
LESS SCARRING, LESS TRAUMA ON ABDOMINAL TISSUE
3D technology has advanced dramatically in the past decade and is now being incorporated into laparoscopic single site incision hysterectomies. We offer the latest in 3D laparoscopy hysterectomy approaches at our facility. This method offers further reduced pain and hemorrhaging, as well as shorter recovery times, less discomfort, and better cosmetic results.
- Less time under anesthesia
- Less time in the operating room
- Less recovery time
- Less trauma and scarring to the abdominal wall
- Less postoperative pain
COMPARE THE DIFFERENT INCISIONS USED TO PERFORM A HYSTERECTOMY
Supra Cervical Hysterectomy
PRESERVATION OF OVARIES
In this procedure, the surgeon removes the uterus and leaves the cervix in place. Some surgeons recommend the removal of the cervix as a preventive measure against cervical cancer. If a woman does not have cancer or concerns with pre-cancer of the cervix, she may want to consider a supra cervical hysterectomy. In this procedure, the ovaries can be preserved. Recovery is generally faster than with other types of hysterectomies.
Total Abdominal Hysterectomy and Tummy Tuck
WITH MINI-ABDOMINAL TUCK
This is the most common type of hysterectomy. During a total abdominal hysterectomy, the uterus and the cervix are removed. Cancer of the ovaries and uterus, endometriosis, and large uterine fibroids are treated with total abdominal hysterectomy. Clearly, a woman cannot bear children after this procedure, so it is not performed on women of childbearing age unless there is a serious condition, such as cancer.
Total abdominal hysterectomy allows the whole abdomen and pelvis to be examined, which is an advantage in women with cancer or who may be investigating growths of unclear cause. Even with laparoscopic and minimally-invasive procedures, this procedure does have a longer recovery time than other types of hysterectomies.
More About Hysterectomies
What Is A Hysterectomy?
A hysterectomy is a surgery to remove the uterus. Depending on the situation, the whole uterus or just part of it may be removed. During the hysterectomy, Fallopian tubes and ovaries may also be removed.
A HYSTERECTOMY MIGHT BE PERFORMED DUE TO:
- Abnormal vaginal bleeding
- Adenomyosis (thickening of the uterus)
- Cancer of the uterus, cervix, or ovaries
- Chronic pelvic pain
- Uterine fibroids that cause or/and pain bleeding
- Uterine prolapse (sliding of the uterus into the vaginal canal)
Types of Hysterectomies
A partial, subtotal, or supra-cervcial hysterectomy removes just the upper part of the uterus. The cervix is left in place.
A total hysterectomy removes the whole uterus and the cervix
A Radical Hysterectomy removes the whole uterus, the tissue on both sides of the cervix, and the upper part of the vagina. This is done mostly when there is cancer present.
