Everything You Wanted to Know But Were Afraid to Ask
Vaginal Hysterectomy Offers Complete and Dramatic Results with Minimal Downtime.
Any woman who’s ever faced the need for pelvic surgery knows the feelings of fear and uncertainty that accompany such a choice. It’s a lot to consider…Will there be scarring? Will this affect my sex life? Will I need to take out a second mortgage on my house to pay for the procedure?
In the past, the abdominal hysterectomy meant six weeks of recovery time, a six to eight-inch abdominal incision and significant pain, inconvenience and blood loss.
Though robotic and laparoscopic procedures have been successful in reducing scarring and recovery times, the technology still requires multiple penetrating abdominal incisions and is often cost prohibitive – not to mention that laparoscopic alternatives rarely help with urine loss and never address the vaginal laxity resulting from childbirth.
The traditional vaginal hysterectomy remains, in most cases, a better alternative and can be done as an outpatient procedure with little recovery time and more favorable results.
