Understanding the Hysterectomy Procedure
A hysterectomy takes place when the doctor operates and removes the uterus. The need for this type of procedure occurs for different reasons. Some of the causes for a hysterectomy include uterine fibroids, uterine prolapse, cancer of the uterus, ovaries or cervix, and endometriosis.
Choosing the Type of Hysterectomy You Need
There are a number of types of hysterectomy procedures. Your medical history will dictate which is right for you. For example, there is a supracervical or subtotal hysterectomy where only part of the uterus is removed, but the cervix isn’t. There is also a total hysterectomy which removes the whole uterus and the cervix.
Last but not least, there is the radical hysterectomy where the surgeon removes the uterus, tissue on the sides of the uterus, the top part of the vagina, and the cervix. This procedure is done in the most extreme cases. It happens when there is a presence of cancer in a woman’s body.
