Hysterectomy Q & A

What is a hysterectomy?

A hysterectomy is a surgical procedure in which a woman’s uterus is removed. The uterus, or womb, is the space where a fetus develops during pregnancy. A woman who undergoes a hysterectomy is no longer able to get pregnant and no longer has a menstrual period. In some situations, during a hysterectomy, your doctor may also remove your ovaries or fallopian tubes.

Since there are various benefits and risks to this type of surgery, you should discuss the matter with your doctor to determine if it is the right option for you.

Why would I need a hysterectomy?

Hysterectomy is the second most common surgery for women after childbirth by Cesarean delivery. Your doctor may suggest a hysterectomy in order to treat a number of women’s health conditions. These may include adenomyosis, cancer of the cervix, ovaries, or uterus, chronic pelvic pain, endometriosis, fibroids, uterine prolapse, and vaginal bleeding that is treatment-resistant.

In some cases, there may be alternatives to surgery to treat your condition. Your doctor will most likely try more conservative treatment approaches before opting to perform a hysterectomy.

How will my hysterectomy be performed?

There are many ways that a hysterectomy may be performed. Your doctor may choose a route through the vagina, the abdomen, or with a laparoscope, which is a small instrument that allows the surgeon to see the pelvic organs.

At M. DelCharco Jr., MD, LLC, Dr. DelCharco and his team of skilled women’s health professionals chooses a minimally-invasive form of surgery, known as laparoscopic supracervical hysterectomy (LSH). This innovative form of surgery comes with benefits, such as reduced pain, less scarring, and a shorter recovery period. The laparoscopic hysterectomy performed at our offices is guided by the advanced technology of the da Vinci Robotic Assisted Hysterectomy which allows your doctor to complete the surgery on an outpatient basis with improved outcomes.
