Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy

It is a procedure by which the uterus is removed completely laparoscopically.

It is a procedure by which the uterus is removed completely laparoscopically. This is done with the aid of a telescope and very fine instruments, without making a big incision in the abdomen.

The advantages over the conventional hysterectomy are that there is minimal tissue handling resulting in much less pain and lesser chances of adhesion formation after the operation. 3-4 very small incisions of 0.5-1.0 cm (as compared to 10-15cms in conventional procedure) are given on the abdomen resulting in less blood loss and lesser chances of wound infection with decreased hospital stay and early recovery as compared to conventional surgery.
