Types of Laparoscopic Hysterectomy

There are several types of laparoscopic hysterectomy. Depending on your needs, all or part of the uterus may be removed. In some cases, the ovaries and fallopian tubes are also removed. Your surgeon will discuss the options with you before surgery.

Total Hysterectomy

A total hysterectomy means that the entire uterus is removed. It may be removed through the vagina. Or, it may be removed in pieces through small incisions in the abdomen.

Hysterectomy with Removal of Ovaries

In this procedure, the uterus, ovaries, and fallopian tubes are removed. The organs may be removed through the vagina or in pieces through small incisions in the abdomen.

Laparoscopic Supracervical Hysterectomy (LSH)

With this procedure, the top portion of the uterus is removed but the cervix is left in place. This procedure may be done if the cervix is healthy. The uterus is removed in pieces through small incisions in the abdomen.
