At Peachtree Gynecology you will the experts when it comes to laparoscopic hysterectomy in the Atlanta area. A hysterectomy is removal of the uterus and is recommended for several conditions such as: fibroid tumors, severe endometriosis, heavy uterine bleeding, uterine prolapse and certain gynecologic cancers. The laparoscopic hysterectomy is a option besides the traditional hysterectomy providing the option for a minimally invasive procedure with just needing a small incision needing to be made.
Laparoscopic options include:
Laparoscopic Assisted Vaginal Hysterectomy:
- Small incisons are made around the belly button to use small laparoscopic instruments to inspect the abdominal contents, release any scar tissue if present, and the uterus, cervix (and tubes and ovaries if desired) are removed through the vagina. The vaginal cuff is repaired through the vagina.
Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy:
- Several incisions are made in the belly and the uterus and cervix are removed through the vagina if small enough. A uterus that is significantly larger than normal will often need to be morcellated (taken out in small pieces) using a special instrument through one of the laparoscopic incisions. The vagina is closed through the laparoscope.
Laparoscopic Supracervical Hysterectomy:
- The uterus (and tubes/ovaries if needed) is removed through several small incisions in the belly. The cervix is left in place.
