Hysterectomy / LAVH
A hysterectomy is an operation for removal of a woman’s uterus. Sometimes, the ovaries and fallopian tubes also are taken out, in that case the surgery is called radical hysterectomy. Hysterectomy is usually considered only after all other treatment approaches have been tried without success. Depending on the reason for the hysterectomy, the gynaecologists at Sneh Hospital may choose either removal of all or only part of the uterus.
Laparoscopically Assisted Vaginal Hysterectomy (LAVH) is a surgical procedure using a laparoscope to guide the removal of the uterus and/or Fallopian tubes and ovaries through the vagina (birth canal). As per our expert gynaecologists at Sneh Hospital not all hysterectomies can or should be done by LAVH. Open Hysterectomy Surgery is the most common approach to hysterectomy accounting for about 65% of all procedures. Laparoscopic Hysterectomy is done using a laparoscope which is a tube with a lighted camera and surgical tools inserted through several small cuts made in the belly.
