Hysterectomy is a surgery to remove the uterus. Some women undergo hysterectomies to prevent pregnancy. Other women have hysterectomies to eliminate or improve certain health conditions, such as:
A vaginal hysterectomy is much less invasive than an abdominal hysterectomy. During a vaginal hysterectomy, Dr. Multack performs the surgery through the vaginal canal. Abdominal hysterectomy requires an incision in the lower abdomen to remove the uterus.
A vaginal hysterectomy typically requires less time in the hospital, costs less, and promotes easier recovery. But if you have an enlarged uterus or Dr. Multack needs to evaluate your organs further, you might have to undergo an abdominal hysterectomy.
Dr. Multack can also perform a hysterectomy using laparoscopic or robotic surgery. Laparoscopic surgery is performed through a few small incisions using a laparoscope (to see inside the body) and a few small instruments.
Dr. Multack offers da Vinci Surgery which uses state-of-the-art equipment to provide quick, minimally invasive hysterectomies. Dr. Multack uses a robotic wrist attachment and magnified 3D goggles to make the most precise movements inside your body. This kind of surgery typically results in less pain, fewer complications, and quicker recovery.
Hysterectomy is one of the safest types of surgery. But just like any surgery, it carries some risks, such as infection, bleeding, damage to neighboring organs, blood clots, and adverse reaction to anesthesia.
For the first few days after surgery, you might experience some pain and swelling, and Dr. Multack can prescribe pain medication. Bleeding, discharge, and constipation are also common following hysterectomy. You may also have restrictions.
You may go through some emotional effects after having a hysterectomy. Knowing you won’t be able to have any more children may be difficult for some. You may also find relief from being free of a medical condition.
If you have a hysterectomy before you’ve gone into menopause, you will immediately have menopausal symptoms. You could also be at increased risk for osteoporosis. Dr. Multack may start you on hormone therapy right after surgery to reduce the menopause symptoms. If you’re considering having a hysterectomy, contact Dr. Multack’s office to set up a consultation.
