Removal of the uterus through a minimally invasive surgical procedure is a Laparoscopic Hysterectomy. As it’s a laparoscopic procedure, a tiny incision is made in the navel/belly button and a tiny camera is inserted in order to conduct the procedure. For the removal process, there are specialized instruments which are used.
Patients usually suffering from the following undergo a hysterectomy procedure:
- Abrnormal Uterine bleeding
- Abnormal growth in the uterus
- Ovarian or Cervical cancers
- Pelvic inflammatory disease
As it’s a laparoscopic procedure, it leaves minimal or no scars which is better than an open surgical procedure. Laparoscopic procedure will also have a quicker recovery time as compared to open surgeries. Laparoscopic hysterectomy also has a very low complication rate.
The procedure is extremely safe as it’s done under complete anaesthesia. Additionally, with it being a laparoscopic procedure, there are very minimal or even no visible scars.
