Laparoscopic Hysterectomy


What is Laparoscopic Hysterectomy?

A laparoscopic hysterectomy is the minimally invasive version of hysterectomy, i.e. the most hassle-free procedure to surgically remove the diseased uterus. In this procedure, a small incision is made around the belly button, and a tiny camera is inserted therein. Meanwhile, the inside of your abdomen is filled with a harmless gas to render a clear image. The surgeon takes a glimpse of the interior and operates with the means of specialized instruments.

Dr Sukhamoy Barik, one of the best laparoscopic hysterectomy surgeons, uses state-of-the-art technologies to conduct zero-risk laparoscopic hysterectomy. 

Laparoscopic Hysterectomy
Some women opt to keep their ovaries when undergoing a hysterectomy. If there is no family history of ovarian cancer or abnormal growth on the ovary, you may choose not to get your ovaries removed. The same goes for the cervix: the patients may choose to either keep the cervix in place (Supra-cervical hysterectomy) or remove the entire uterus and cervix (Total laparoscopic hysterectomy).

According to the best laparoscopic hysterectomy surgeons, not tampering with the cervix makes the operation quicker and safer. However, if the woman wants to stop menstruating once and for all, she needs to have the entire uterus removed. If the patient has a medical history of cancerous or pre-cancerous changes of the cervix or uterine lining, it is a good idea to have the entire uterus removed. If your physician recommends surgery to ameliorate pelvic pain, the best laparoscopic hysterectomy surgeons might consider removing your cervix to treat your chronic pain most effectively.

The Advantages of Laparoscopic Hysterectomy Surgery

There is a world of advantages to laparoscopic hysterectomy surgery, such as:

  • It only requires a few incisions, and thus much more hassle-free than a traditional surgery.
  • The process involves minimum blood loss and scarring, hence, incurs less post-operative pain.
  • It requires a significantly shorter hospital stay.
  • The recovery period is not more than 1-2 weeks and hence significantly shorter than the traditional surgery procedure, which requires 4-6 weeks for recovery.
  • The risk of infections is significantly minimized.
