Partial hysterectomy should not be performed in patients at risk of cervical cancer. Total or radical hysterectomy is recommended in case of cervical cancer suspicion. In addition, in some cases, the doctor may decide to undergo radical or total hysterectomy due to complications during the procedure.
Although there is no advantage over a total hysterectomy in resolving gynecological disorders, supracervical hysterectomy may be preferred for reasons such as rapid healing process and less pain. Due to this reason, this procedure will be applied to patients with pelvic pain and abnormal bleeding, but without any risk of cancer.
