Have you or someone you know been advised to have a hysterectomy? If so, it is important to know all of your treatment options. Recent advances in surgical technologies have enabled physicians to remove the uterus, fallopian tubes and, if indicated, the ovaries without having to make a large abdominal or any vaginal incisions. Using a high resolution video “eye” and miniaturized vessel sealing tools, entire hysterectomy cases can be performed from start to finish – all through one of three tiny puncture sites around the belly button.
The high tech surgery, known as laparoscopic supracervical hysterectomy, or LSH for short, has revolutionized the treatment of common gynecologic conditions, such as uterine fibroids, endometriosis and heavy menstrual bleeding. Remarkably, women who undergo the minimally invasive procedure have reported much less post-operative pain, fewer infections, and an overall quicker recovery as compared to traditional abdominal or vaginal hysterectomy.
The doctors at The Women’s Health Center are among the most experienced LSH surgeons in Mississippi.
