What is a Hysterectomy?

Making the decision to have a hysterectomy at Essential Women's Health Associates is a personal choice, and we are proud to offer this service as a minimally invasive surgery using robotic-assisted or laparoscopic techniques. Your quality of life may be on the line because of your feminine health. You may have painful uterine fibroids, a pelvic organ prolapse, or treatment-resistant endometriosis that would be best treated with a hysterectomy. One of our experienced board-certified or board-eligible OBGYNs can assist you in making the decision to remove part or all of your uterus with a hysterectomy. We are proud to offer the hysterectomy with laparoscopic surgery. Have a private consultation with one of our practitioners at our Las Vegas or Henderson, NV offices.

What to expect during a HYSTERECTOMY

Our laparoscopic hysterectomies are performed at an accredited surgical facility or local hospital and usually take about two hours to complete under a general anesthetic. A total hysterectomy with laparoscopy involves the use of a laparoscope positioned through a small incision in the abdomen. Your surgeon will make several small incisions in the abdomen, which allows for the placement of the medical instruments used to remove the uterus.

With the camera-guided, magnified view of your internal organs, your uterus will be removed. Your incisions will then be closed, and you will be sent to recovery. If you were to have traditional open surgery to remove your uterus, there would be one large, long incision made across your lower abdomen. This technique allows you to have very small, fine-lined scars that heal quickly.

How long is recovery after a HYSTERECTOMY?

We strive to provide a safer and more effective alternative to traditional open surgery by performing the vast majority of our procedures via laparoscopy. It is because of these skills and procedures that we get referrals from other providers for complicated cases that would otherwise be performed via a large abdominal incision. We are leaders in developing innovative, minimally invasive procedures that offer our patients:

  • Faster recoveries
  • Less pain
  • Smaller incisions
  • Early return to normal daily activities
  • Shorter hospital stays

Hysterectomy FAQs

Is robotic hysterectomy proven and safe?
The use of robotics for hysterectomy may seem intimidating at first, but it's not a new concept. Robotic surgery has been used in all kinds of medical procedures and has an excellent track record when it comes to safety. The professionals at Essential Women's Health Associates wouldn't offer this technology if they didn't think it was the right choice for women who need this surgery.

How do I decide if a robotic procedure is right for me?
Patients in Las Vegas, NV, in need of a hysterectomy are encouraged to have an open and thorough discussion with their doctor. During your consultation, we can review every part of the surgery and make sure you understand what's involved. Our team also reassures patients that a robotic procedure means faster recovery times and an earlier return to the activities they love.

How long does it take to recover?
Thanks to the use of robotics, most women are able to recover from a robotic hysterectomy within a few weeks. However, your recovery timeline will depend on a variety of factors, including your physical health and your ability to follow through with postoperative care. Essential Women's Health Associates can make sure you have everything you need for a short recovery.

Can a hysterectomy affect hormone levels or cause menopause?
A hysterectomy can impact hormone levels, especially if the ovaries are removed during the procedure. If the ovaries are left intact, they continue to produce hormones, and menopause will occur naturally. However, if the ovaries are removed, menopause begins immediately, and you might experience symptoms like hot flashes or mood changes. Our team at Essential Women's Health Associates will discuss these potential outcomes with you and provide guidance on managing any changes.

Are there any long-term lifestyle changes I need to make post-hysterectomy?
After a hysterectomy, most women can return to their normal lifestyle. However, certain long-term considerations are important. For instance, maintaining a healthy weight and a balanced diet is crucial. Regular exercise is also recommended, but it's important to avoid heavy lifting or high-impact activities for a period as advised by your doctor. Our team will provide personalized advice based on your specific situation.

How will a hysterectomy affect my sexual health?
Many women have concerns about how a hysterectomy might affect their sexual health. The impact can vary, but most women find that after recovery, their sexual health remains the same or improves. This is because the surgery often relieves symptoms like pain, which might have been affecting intimacy. Our professionals at Essential Women's Health Associates are committed to discussing these sensitive topics with you and addressing any concerns you may have.
