Laparoscopic Hysterectomy

Laparoscopic Hysterectomy - LH

This outpatient procedure involves laparoscopic removal of the cervix and uterus, with or without removal of the ovaries. Fallopian tubes are often removed since it is now believed that fallopian tubes are the source for epithelial cancers of the ovaries. This outpatient approach is associated with less pain, fewer adhesions, and a quicker recovery than the open approach. Other conditions, such as endometriosis and adhesions, can be treated at the same time. Pelvic support procedures can be performed at the same time. This procedure is performed by laparoscopy with 4 small (5mm) abdominal incisions. There is also a 5th incision at the top of the vagina where the vaginal apex is closed.
