Vaginal Hysterectomy

Vaginal Hysterectomy

A vaginal hysterectomy is a surgical procedure that involves removal of the uterus through the vagina. It is a better alternative when compared to abdominal hysterectomy as the recovery period is shorter and the procedure will leave no scar on your abdomen. However, there are various factors that affect the procedure including the shape and size of the uterus and the reason behind the surgery. A vaginal hysterectomy can treat a number of gynaecological issues like uterine prolapse, fibroids, gynaecological cancer, adenomyosis and chronic pelvic pain, to name a few.

How is it performed?

  • Before the procedure, general anaesthesia is administered to the patient.
  • The surgeon will make an incision in the vagina to reach the uterus.
  • The surgeon then detaches the uterus from the fallopian tubes, ovaries and the upper vagina with long instruments. The connective tissues and blood vessels will also be detached.
  • Once the uterus is completely detached, it will be removed through the incision made in the vagina.
  • The incision will then be sealed with absorbable stitches that will keep internal bleeding under control.
