Statistically, Hysterectomy has been considered as one of the most commonly performed surgical procedures. Only Vaginal hysterectomies were performed earlier for almost 2 centuries until the introduction of laparoscopic hysterectomy. This innovative laparoscopic surgery for hysterectomy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure to remove the uterus.
A tiny incision is made in the navel through which a camera is inserted. The surgeon monitors the entire procedure through the TV monitor. A few more incisions are made in the lower abdomen and through these, specialized are inserted and used for the uterus removal process.
This total laparoscopic hysterectomy procedure has been associated with decreased blood loss, shorter hospital stay, speedier return to normal activities, and fewer abdominal wall infections when compared with abdominal hysterectomies. Recent reviews concluded that a laparoscopic hysterectomy is preferable over the vaginal hysterectomy, as sometimes the later is not possible.
A total laparoscopic hysterectomy requires only a few small incisions, compared to the traditional abdominal hysterectomy, which is done through a 5-6 inch incision. Less blood loss, less scarring, and less post-operative pain are being considered as the significant advantages of this innovative procedure.
The laparoscopic surgery for hysterectomy can be even done as an outpatient procedure which means there is no need to stay in the hospital for 2-3 days like the traditional vaginal hysterectomy. The risk of blood loss and infection are considerably less with this procedure, hence it involves no greater risk.
