Subtotal hysterectomy is the most limited of all hysterectomy operations but is also referred to as subcervical or partial hysterectomy. In this surgery, only the uterus is removed, and the cervix remains in place. It is not used in cases requiring hysterectomy such as endometriosis or cancer due to the low scope of surgery.
Partial hysterectomy may be done in many ways, like:
• Abdominal hysterectomy – Specialists reach the uterus through a long incision from the abdomen.
• Vaginal hysterectomy – Specialists remove the patient's uterus from the patient's vagina. This kind of hysterectomy operation may be assisted by laparoscopy in which known as a laparoscopic-assisted vaginal hysterectomy.
• Partial laparoscopic hysterectomy – Instead of a large incision, a number of small incisions are made. In this way, specialists can reach the area through a laparoscope, and instruments and cameras equipped with medical devices.
Subtotal hysterectomy performed to cure gynecological disorders, for instance, bleeding or pelvic pain. In some cases it is used for the treatment of endometriosis. However, endometriosis may recur later.
