A hysterectomy is a surgical procedure to remove your uterus. After hysterectomy surgery, you stop having menstrual periods and can no longer get pregnant. The skilled surgeons at Coeur OBGYN perform different types of hysterectomy procedures, including open surgery and minimally invasive alternatives.
An open hysterectomy requires making a large incision on your abdomen to remove the uterus. Minimally invasive procedures use a specialized instrument called a laparoscope to remove the uterus through several, much smaller incisions. The laparoscope is a thin, lighted instrument with a camera that allows your surgeon to view and treat your internal organs.
In some cases, your surgeon at Coeur OBGYN performs a hysterectomy with the assistance of the da Vinci® robotic arm. This advanced robotic system provides your surgeon with a greater level of precision and control.
