Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy

Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy

An operating instrument named a laparoscope, is exerted in an operation to remove the uterus (womb) and cervix through a process called Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy (TLH). The tool is injected into the abdominal wall by a small incision that helps the surgeon to inspect the abdomen or pelvis. TLH operation removes the uterus and cervix without executing large incisions on the abdomen.

Though, ovaries and tubes can be removed in the laparoscopic operation if therapeutically demanded. 

At Punya Hospitals, we are a team of qualified doctors performing the Laparoscopic Hysterectomy that allows us to examine the internal part of a patient’s body without producing much pain and excessive bleeding. 

1. Prognosis –Common Reasons To Undergo Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy

2. Fibroids – TLH treats non-cancerous tumors that cause pelvic pain, bleeding, and more symptoms. 

3. Endometriosis – The presence of uterine lining on other parts like the abdomen can cause pain and result in scarring. TLH surgery can cure endometriosis. 

4. Pre-cancerous Tumor – The antidote to the increased risk of cancer is total laparoscopic surgery without providing peril to patients.

 5. Uterine Prolapse – When the muscles and tissues around the uterus become weak and do not provide enough support to the uterus, it causes the downward movement of the uterus into the vagina. Thus, TLH treats prolapse by providing less pain and better recovery.

The surgery and sedation can take up to 3-4 hours, doctors also suggested spending some time in the recovery room. General anesthesia has been given to patients to start the surgery. The doctors at Punya Hospital, make a small incision around the belly. Two or three small incisions on the lower abdomen to add some necessary operating instruments. Carbon-dioxide gas is puffed up to make some space that allows doctors to insert and examine the pelvis/abdomen. It takes quite some time to resume digestive functions. Accordingly, doctors may advise in some cases to be in recovery for a  night. Moreover, TLH is a major surgery and it takes up to 4 weeks to fully recover.
