Hysterectomy – Evolved Surgical Procedure:
Over last two decades, enormous advances in instrumentation and acquisition of requisite surgical skills has enabled most Hysterectomies to be performed without giving large incision ( cut ) on the abdomen ( belly ). This is called Minimally Invasive Surgery( MIS ) or Minimal Access Surgery( MAS ) which include Advanced Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy ( TLH ), and in some selected cases Non Descent Vaginal Hysterectomy ( NDVH ).Laparoscopic surgery is also called “Key Hole Surgery and Button Hole Surgery”. NDVH is also called “Natural Orifice Surgery”.
All these terminology suggest that now days Hysterectomy is a simple and quick procedure. You don’t have to get scared of scars and big cuts on your abdomen. It is a type of short stay surgery, this means that post surgery you can get discharged from the hospital in a day. Recovery is quick and hassle free as there are no stiches. These surgeries can now also be done through the belly button.
But why Advanced Minmal Access Hysterectomy.
The advanced technique has many benefits over traditional Abdominal hysterectomy :
- Less pain
- Lower rate of infection
- Short hospital stay
- Early return to activity and wor
- More cost effective
- Enormous patient satisfaction.
Both techniques,TLH and NDVH require extremely high level of expertise and a good team work. In addition, TLH requires advanced instrumentation.
At Paras Hospitals, we perform TLH and NDVH routinely with extremely high level of patient satisfaction. Almost all patients demand doing hysterectomy without cutting the belly. We have the most recent and mandatory advanced operating Laparoscopic system, equipped with high definition camera (which makes the procedure much safer and easier), special surgical instrumentation like, Harmonic scalpel, Ligasure, and Morcallater to take out even very large size uterus and huge fibroids. With adequate experience and with good equipment, any number of fibroids and very large sized uteri can be be removed laparoscopically.
