The removal of the uterus can be either partial – uterus only; or include the cervix, fallopian tubes and ovaries.

  • Uterine fibroids
  • Endometriosis
  • Uterine prolapse
  • Abnormal vaginal bleeding
  • Excessive & chronic vaginal pain

A hysterectomy is a procedure to remove the uterus via an incision in the lower abdomen. The procedure is performed either under general anesthesia or a spinal block. A partial hysterectomy removes just the uterus, leaving the cervix intact. A total hysterectomy removes the uterus and the cervix. In some cases, a hysterectomy includes removal of one or both ovaries and fallopian tubes.

It is important to have a detailed conversation with your doctor on the need for the procedure and the expected outcomes.
