There are a number of conditions that may be improved or cured by the surgical removal of a woman’s uterus, including the fallopian tubes and ovaries. This procedure, known as a hysterectomy, can be used to treat endometriosis, uterine cancer, and a prolapsed uterus, among other conditions. Recent advancements in medicine now allow surgeons to remove the uterus through the vagina rather than through an abdominal incision, thus reducing the risks involved and the recovery time. If you are a candidate for this procedure, our staff at Women’s Premier OB/GYN will ensure that you are fully informed about the procedure and its risks and benefits. We will provide ample space for you to ask questions and will talk you through the steps leading up to, during, and after the procedure so that you feel comfortable and knowledgeable throughout the process.
