Frequently Asked Questions
A laparoscopic hysterectomy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure to remove the uterus. A small incision is made in the belly button and a tiny camera is inserted. The surgeon watches the image from this camera on a TV screen and performs the operative procedure.
Since the procedure doesn’t require bigger incisions, it is safe and recovery is quick.
Women undergoing a hysterectomy may prefer this procedure. However, if the uterus is bigger in size, it is not advisable.
