Let us first understand what laparoscopic hysterectomy is?
Laparoscopic hysterectomy is a procedure to remove the uterus using a minimally invasive surgical technique. Although it is a major surgery, the discomfort, possibility of infection and recovery time have all been reduced due to modern technological developments.
Hysterectomy is carried out for several reasons, including:
- Uterine prolapse
- Painful uterine fibroids that cause bleeding or other complications.
- Thickening of the uterus
- Chronic pelvic pain
- Heavy vaginal bleeding
- Cancer of the ovaries, cervix, or uterus
Types of laparoscopic hysterectomy in Ahmedabad
Our experienced gynecologist in Ahmedabad may remove the uterus along with the tubes and ovaries and / or part of it depending on the cause of the hysterectomy.
- Total hysterectomy – The entire uterus and cervix are removed during a total hysterectomy.
- Subtotal hysterectomy – Only the upper section of the uterus is removed in this procedure, leaving the cervix intact.
- Radical hysterectomy -The uterus with the side tissues, the cervix, and the top section of the vagina are all removed during a radical hysterectomy. It is mainly performed if cancer is present.
Our gynecologist may remove the ovaries or leave them in place. A hysterectomy and bilateral salpingectomy-oophorectomy is a surgical procedure that involves removing the entire uterus, bothovaries, and both tubes.
Procedure for laparoscopic hysterectomy
Our gynaecologists at Nisha Women’s Hospital use different modalities for hysterectomy in Ahmedabad depending on the cause for the hysterectomy and the patient’s overall health.
The hysterectomy approach will have a role in determining how long it takes to recover and what kind of scar, if any, remains following the procedure.
A laparoscope consisting of a tube with a lighted camera and surgical tools is passed through a few tiny cuts in the abdomen. The hysterectomy is done from outside the body, with the surgeon watching the procedure on a video screen.
What are the risks of laparoscopic hysterectomy?
Some of the complications of laparoscopic hysterectomy include:
- Blood clots
- Chronic pain
- Damage to surrounding organs like the urethra, bladder, nerves, and blood vessels
What are the benefits of undergoing laparoscopic hysterectomy in Ahmedabad?
Compared to a typical abdominal hysterectomy, which involves a 3–6-inch cut, a laparoscopic hysterectomy requires only a few tiny incisions. As a result, less blood loss, minimum scarring, and less post-operative pain.
A laparoscopic hysterectomy is generally performed as an outpatient treatment, whereas an abdominal hysterectomy usually necessitates a couple of days’ stay in the hospital.
Furthermore, laparoscopic treatment has a recovery time of 1-2 weeks instead of 4-6 weeks for an abdominal hysterectomy.
In the hands of a skilled gynecologist like Dr. Himali Maniar, a laparoscopic hysterectomy takes about the same amount of time as an abdominal hysterectomy and carries no additional risk.
Patients will need to take pain medication for a few days after surgery. They are encouraged to get out of bed as soon as possible. One week after surgery, some women can return to work. Women with physically demanding jobs should stay at home for two to three weeks. Within a few weeks of surgery, women can begin exercising again.
Patients with a laparoscopic hysterectomy are likely to have less post-operative pain than those with a standard hysterectomy or cesarean section.
