A Hysterectomy is an operation to remove a woman's uterus. In India gynaecologist and surgeons use latest techniques like Laparoscope Assisted Vaginal Hysterectomy (LAVH) for doing Hysterectomy. Laparoscopically assisted vaginal hysterectomy (LAVH) is a surgical procedure using a laparoscope to guide the removal of the uterus and/or Fallopian tubes and ovaries through the vagina (birth canal). During a hysterectomy the surgeon may remove the entire uterus or just part of it. The fallopian tubes and ovaries may also be removed. Hysterectomy can be of many types that include:
Partial hysterectomy - only upper part of uterus removal is done
Total Hysterectomy - Uterus removal alongwith cervix is done
Radical Hysterectomy - Uterus along with cervix and ovaries are removed
In India the most advanced type of hysterectomy that is done is a Laparoscope Assisted Vaginal Hysterectomy (LAVH).
There are many reasons a for which a woman may need a hysterectomy. Gynaecologist may advise hysterectomy in following condtions:
Cancer of the uterus, cervix or the ovary
Childbirth complications, such as uncontrolled bleeding
Long-term (chronic) pelvic pain
Severe endometriosis that does not get better with other treatments
Severe, long-term vaginal bleeding that is not controlled with other treatments
Slipping of the uterus into the vagina (uterine prolapse)
Large Fibroids, which cause heavy, painful periods
This is done using a laparoscope to guide the removal of the uterus and/or Fallopian tubes and ovaries through the vagina (birth canal). However it may be noted that not all cases are fit for a laparoscopic assisted vaginal hysterectomy. The decision of the surgeon or the gynaecologist whether to go for a LAVH or abdmonial hysterectomy depends upon the reason for hysterectomy. The main objective is to have least possible blood loss and safety of patient.
Dr Sumita Singh, Dr Amita Shah and Dr Parvinder Kaur are the best exponents of Hysterectomy whether Laparoscopic Vaginal Hysterectomy or Abdominal Hystrectomy. They have vast experience in operating upon such cases. Dr Amita Shah is an experienced gynaecologist and vastly trained in performing all gynae surgeries through laparoscopic method. Dr Sumita Singh has more than 30 years of experience in the field of gynae surgery.
The cost of the hysterectomy depends upon the type of hysterectomy being done. The cost of an abdominal hysterectomy would be approximately USD 3800 to USD 4200 where as the cost for LAVH would be approximately USD 5000 to 5500 with 2-3 days stay in hospital. Post discharge stay in India would be for about 2 weeks. The complete recovery after the surgery usually takes anything between 5-6 weeks.
