  • LAPAROSCOPIC HYSTERECTOMY

    A hysterectomy is a surgical removal of the uterus. In a laparoscopic hysterectomy, as the name suggests, a laparoscope is used for surgery. It is a minimally invasive surgery, with only two or three incisions made in the abdominal region.

    Advantages

    • Eliminates the risk of Ovarian Cancer
    • Good option for women with a family who wish to have sex without any chance of pregnancy

    Length

    • The procedure may last for between one to two hours

    Causes

    Hysterectomies are generally performed to treat

    • Uterine fibroids
    • Heavy bleeding
    • Endometriosis
    • Adenomyosis
    • Uterine prolapse
    • Uterine cancer

    Diagnosis

    • A hysterectomy is recommended only after the condition is identified and conventional treatment has failed to bring results.
    • The uterine structure can be observed via various imaging techniques like MRI Scans, Doppler imaging, etc.
    • A biopsy of the uterine tissue may be done to diagnose cancer.

    Symptoms

    A medical examination is advised when the patient feels one or more of the following symptoms

    • Excessive abdominal pain
    • Excessive bleeding during menstrual cycle

    Preparation

    Certain medications are to be specifically avoided pre surgery

    • Pre operative antibiotics.
    • Avoid wearing any jewelry.
    • Void the bladder regularly.
    • Avoid post operative prophylactic antibiotics.

    Procedure

    In Laparoscopic hysterectomy, small keyhole incisions are made in the abdomen and/or navel for introducing the Laparoscope into the body. The laparoscope is a long, flexible tube that has miniature surgical instruments attached to its head, along with a camera and light source.This instrument is inserted into the body and the surgery is performed by the surgeon via a controller.The images are transmitted to the screen, via which the surgeon can perform the procedure.The recovery period is minimal for this procedure, and the patient might even get a discharge the very next day.The surgery is performed under general anesthesia.

    Follow up

    Patients are required to follow up with their physician for up to 4-6 weeks post surgery. In the following cases, consult your physician immediately:

    • Abnormal vaginal bleeding
    • Chest pain, coughing, difficulty in breathing
    • Painful urination

    Laparoscopic hysterectomy is a minimally invasive method, and is more widely recommended than a vaginal hysterectomy. The recovery is faster, and the lifestyle after surgery is also minimally affected.
