What happens during Radical hysterectomy?
The surgery is performed under general anesthesia. During this operation, Dr. Monika will remove the uterus, cervix and part of the vagina, along with the parametrium (the connective tissue that surrounds the cervix). If needed, the ovaries, fallopian tubes and nearby lymph nodes can also be removed. There are 3 ways a hysterectomy can be performed:
Laparoscopic hysterectomy (womb, cervix and other parts are removed through a keyhole)
Vaginal hysterectomy (the womb and cervix are removed through an incision that's made in the top of the vagina)
Abdominal hysterectomy (incision is made in the abdomen and womb removed from there)
Bathing and showering after surgery
Dr. Monika will decide which is the best suitable option for the patient.
