There are three types of Hysterectomy treatment procedures available in India, they are:
1. Traditional Hysterectomy or Abdominal Hysterectomy
2. Vaginal Hysterectomy
3. Laparoscopic Hysterectomy

Abdominal Hysterectomy:

Abdominal Hysterectomy is the traditional Hysterectomy that is performed by making an incision of about 6 to 10 inches near the abdominal area to remove the uterus. Being an open surgery, traditional hysterectomy involves pain, visible surgery scars for a woman. Even the recovery time is also so long that there are hysterectomy recovery treatments available to help a woman get back to her normal routine.

Vaginal Hysterectomy:

In the case of vaginal hysterectomy, the incision is made near the top portion of the vagina to remove the uterus. It is through this incision opening, your surgeon separates the uterus from the blood supply and connecting tissue through the canal of the woman’s vagina. Vaginal hysterectomy causes no visible scar, requires a shorter recovery period, hospital stay and less pain. Vagina hysterectomy is often preferred over traditional hysterectomy procedure for the treatment of non-cancerous conditions by top hysterectomy surgeons around the world.

Laparoscopic Hysterectomy:

Laparoscopic hysterectomy is an advanced minimally invasive procedure that is performed through four tiny key-hole cuts. A tiny opening is made near the belly button and carbon dioxide gas is pumped to puff-up the area for a clearer view. A camera, light source are inserted through other openings and as the image is projected on to the TV screen the surgeon performs the removal of the uterus with specialized tiny instruments.
The traditional Hysterectomy procedure dates backs to the early 19th century and with the advent of anaesthesia and surgical tools the procedure was perfected and had become the standard procedure until the arrival of more advanced procedures like Vaginal and Laparoscopic Hysterectomies.
Hysterectomy today is the second most common gynaecological surgery performed around the world and with tiny incision, less post-operative pain, very short recovery time, the lowest risk of blood loss and complications, laparoscopic hysterectomy is the pick among other procedures.
