Laparoscopic supracervical hysterectomy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure where the uterus is extracted through small incisions in the abdomen.
The cervix is left behind and remains in place for added support to the vagina and neighboring structures.
The procedure is typically done to treat diseases or complications of the uterus such as endometriosis, fibroids, infection in the ovaries or fallopian tubes, pelvic pain, and abnormal vaginal bleeding.
Laparoscopic supracervical hysterectomy is a safe, minimally invasive approach in hysterectomy. The procedure is typically completed in one to three hours and recovery after laparoscopic surgery generally takes 2 weeks.
Laparoscopic hysterectomies have been strongly associated with decreased blood loss, shorter hospital stay, speedier return to normal activities, and fewer abdominal wall infections when compared with abdominal hysterectomies.
The cost of such a procedure starts from USD 3,584.
