What is hysterectomy?
Hysterectomy is an operation to remove the uterus. The uterus is also called womb. The complete uterus (womb) is removed during the hysterectomy procedure. Depending upon the complication of the situation, your gynecologist or obstetrician may decide to remove your fallopian tubes and ovaries as well along with the uterus.
Suffering from any of the following? Hysterectomy is the solution you are looking for.
- Cancer of the uterus, cervix or ovaries.
- Abnormal vaginal bleeding.
- Chronic pelvic pain.
- Pelvic inflammatory disease.
- Uterine fibroids that cause constant pain and bleeding.
- Misplacement or sliding of the uterus from its normal position into the vaginal canal.

Why Choose Yashoda Hospital & Research Centre
How we keep you comfortable during hysterectomy
During the hysterectomy procedure, our primary aim is to keep you as comfortable and in good spirits as possible. Based on your condition, the procedure can be performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia. In both conditions, you will feel no pain. Your gynecologist will perform the operation taking your physical disposition into consideration. You will also be kept informed at every stage.
- In the vaginal hysterectomy, the procedure is performed through the vaginal opening. The affected uterus is gently detached from the tissues, veins and ligaments. Once the uterus is taken out, the area is stitched back.
- Abdominal hysterectomy is another option. In this case, the affected uterus is accessed through the lower belly. A cut is made from the belly button either vertically or horizontally. After the operation is done, the area is re-stitched.
- Once the operation is done, you will spend some time in the ICU under medical observation for post-surgery recovery. This may be for a few hours. In the absence of any complications or discomfort, you will be discharged.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can there be complications after a hysterectomy operation?
No matter how safe or small a surgery is, there may be some chances of complications after the procedure. Hysterectomy is a small procedure. In most of the cases, after improving the patient goes home and within a few days, recovers fully.
There may be excessive bleeding for some days. You may also go through mood swings also. There will be some hormonal changes as well. But all in all, a hysterectomy is done to make the patient feel better and any chances of complications may be rare.
How do I prepare for hysterectomy?
All the needed information will be provided to you by your gynecologist or obstetrician. You may be asked to do the following before the surgery:
- Lose weight if you are overweight.
- Stop smoking.
- Bring other medical conditions under control.
- Increase iron intake if your blood count is low.
- Provide a list of medications you are taking and submit the same to your doctor.
- Increased liquid intake a week before the surgery.
- Plan a leave because you will need to recover in a relaxed manner.
- Eat light one day before the hysterectomy surgery.
- Have a good night sleep.
- Skip breakfast on the day of the surgery.
- Avoid wearing any jewellery to the hospital.
- Don’t hesitate to tell your doctor if you are feeling unwell or if you need to reschedule your surgery.
How long do I need to stay in the hospital?
It depends upon the route your surgeon has taken for the hysterectomy procedure – vaginal or abdominal. In case of vaginal hysterectomy, the patient can go home the same day or one day after the surgery. However, in case of abdominal hysterectomy, the patient may need to stay in the hospital for 1-3 nights.
How do I know which route is better for me-vaginal or abdominal?
This answer depends on your current medical condition. The hysterectomy surgery will be suggested by your doctor after observing your symptoms and the medical problems you are facing. The first option is vaginal incision which is quicker and less intrusive but then depending on how comprehensive is the surgery to be performed, the final decision will be taken by your doctor.
What is laparoscopic hysterectomy?
It involves just a few small incisions in the abdomen of the patient. The surgeon inserts a laparoscope that allows the surgeon to see the pelvic organs. Other small insertions are made to insert surgical instruments to perform the surgery without cutting up the patient. The uterus is removed in small pieces through the incisions.
What other organs apart from the uterus and cervix will be removed?
The uterus is the main part that is removed during the hysterectomy surgery. The ovaries and fallopian tubes may also be removed but in most of the cases, the surgeon does not know this until the time of the surgery. Patients who are at risk of getting ovarian cancer or even breast cancer can choose to get both their ovaries removed even if presently they may be healthy. A part of the upper vagina may also be removed. A procedure called opportunistic salpingectomy involves removing only the fallopian tubes leaving the ovaries untouched, especially if the patient does not have cancer.
