Laparoscopic hysterectomy is a kind of hysterectomy that means the removal of one’s womb or other organs. Doctors do not access the patient's uterus through the vagina or with big incisions in the abdomen. It needs only a few small incisions. These incisions made for the device called laparoscope to reach the area of operation; this device includes surgical tools and a camera. Through these methods, recovery time got shorter than other methods, and infection risks decreased. The laparoscopic method in hysterectomy known for many years but still uncommon because hysterectomy generally performed as abdominal or vaginal. Even so, laparoscopic hysterectomy operation statistics rapidly rise than before. Like other types of hysterectomy, laparoscopic hysterectomy has many types, including:
• Total laparoscopic hysterectomy – removal of both womb and cervix
• Partial laparoscopic hysterectomy – removal of just the womb – it is rarely performed because of cervical cancer risk.
• Total laparoscopic hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy – in this hysterectomy surgery, doctors attempt to remove the womb, cervix, ovaries, and fallopian tubes.
• Radical laparoscopic hysterectomy – it is the type of hysterectomy with the widest scope. Doctors proceed to remove womb, cervix, ovaries, fallopian tubes, and part of one’s vagina.
The main reason for hysterectomy operation is cancer. But also, pelvic pain which has untraceable origin can be another reason.
