A laparoscopic hysterectomy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure to remove the uterus. A laparoscopic hysterectomy requires only a few small incisions, compared to a traditional abdominal hysterectomy which is done through a 3-6 inch incision. As a result, there is less blood loss, less scarring and less post-operative pain. A laparoscopic hysterectomy is usually done as an outpatient procedure while an abdominal hysterectomy usually requires a 2-3 day hospital stay. The recovery period for this laparoscopic procedure is 1-2 weeks, compared to 4-6 weeks after an abdominal hysterectomy.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Laparoscopic Hysterectomy Surgery?
Most patients who are having a hysterectomy to treat abnormal various uterine disorders, including pelvic pressure and pain, fibroids, endometriosis and many others, can have a laparoscopic hysterectomy. There are, however, situations when this minimally invasive procedure is not possible and your OB/GYN surgeon has to opt for a traditional hysterectomy. For example, if the uterus is bigger than a 4 month pregnancy or if the patient had had multiple previous operations in her lower abdomen. It is usually not recommended when cancer is suspected.
