Understanding Abdominal Hysterectomy Surgery
Know Your Options Before Your Surgery
An abdominal hysterectomy is a special surgery where a woman’s uterus is removed through a small incision made in the lower part of her abdomen. With a partial hysterectomy, only the uterus is removed while both the uterus and the cervix are removed with a total hysterectomy. miVIP offers you the option of having a traditional hysterectomy surgery or having our qualified surgeons complete a da Vinci robotic hysterectomy procedure instead. With the minimally invasive robotic procedure, thin instruments are passed through small incisions in your abdomen in order to remove the uterus. One of the reasons you might have to undergo an abdominal hysterectomy is that you have a large uterus, either that or your doctor might want to look over the rest of the organs in your pelvis for signs of disease.
Reasons to Get a Hysterectomy
There are a number of conditions and reasons that you might have to have an abdominal hysterectomy done, including:
- Fibroids. With benign uterine tumors, a hysterectomy might be the only viable and permanent solution
- Endometriosis. With endometriosis, the lining of the tissue in the uterus is growing outside of the uterus and on abdominal and pelvic organs. A hysterectomy might be the best way to improve the condition
- Excessive vaginal bleeding. Women who have heavy periods or prolonged periods might be able to experience relief with a hysterectomy if other methods have been deemed to be unsuccessful
- Gynecologic Cancer. If you ever contract cancer of the uterus or the cervix, your best option for effective treatment might be a hysterectomy. Other options for treatment can include chemotherapy and radiation
