What is Hysterectomy?

Hysterectomy is a surgical procedure to remove a woman’s uterus, the organ where a baby grows during pregnancy. During the surgery, the entire uterus or a portion of it may be removed, depending on the specific medical condition and the reason for the procedure. Hysterectomy is not always the first treatment option but may be necessary in some cases.

There are different types of Hysterectomy procedures available; these include:

  • Total Hysterectomy – removes the entire uterus and cervix
  • Subtotal Hysterectomy – removes the upper part of the uterus
  • Radical Hysterectomy – removes the uterus, cervix, and surrounding reproductive tissues

During your consultation, Dr. Supriya Puranik & team will discuss your medical history and perform a thorough physical examination to determine the best type of Hysterectomy for your needs.

Reasons for Hysterectomy

There are various medical conditions and reasons that may necessitate a hysterectomy. Some of the common reasons for undergoing a hysterectomy include:

  • Uterine Fibroids: Non-cancerous growths in the uterus called fibroids can lead to severe pain, heavy menstrual bleeding, and pressure on surrounding organs, often requiring a hysterectomy for relief.
  • Endometriosis: A chronic condition occurs when the tissue that lines the inside of the uterus begins to grow outside of it.. When other treatments fail, a hysterectomy might be considered. Read more about endometriosis.
  • Uterine Prolapse: This occurs when the muscles and ligaments that support the uterus weaken, causing the uterus to descend into the vaginal canal. Hysterectomy may be performed in severe cases.
  • Chronic Pelvic Pain: When chronic pelvic pain is severe and other treatments are ineffective, removing the uterus might be considered as a last resort to alleviate the pain.
  • Abnormal Uterine Bleeding: In cases of prolonged, heavy, or irregular menstrual bleeding that doesn’t respond to other treatments, hysterectomy might be considered as a treatment option. Read More
  • Chronic Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID): Severe and recurrent PID, which is an infection of the female reproductive organs, can lead to irreversible damage, necessitating a hysterectomy.
  • Adenomyosis: This is a condition where the tissue lining the uterus grows into the muscular wall, causing pain and heavy bleeding. Hysterectomy may be recommended for severe cases. Read More

It’s important to note that a hysterectomy is a major surgery and should only be considered after careful evaluation, discussions with infertility specialists like Dr. Supriya Puranik, and when all other treatment options have been explored and deemed ineffective or inappropriate for the specific medical condition.

Risks and Benefits of Hysterectomy

Like other medical procedures, there are potential risks and complications associated with Hysterectomy. Some of these include:

  • Reaction to anaesthesia
  • Blood loss or heavy bleeding
  • Infection
  • Injury to nearby organs
  • Vaginal vault prolapse

However, patients can experience many benefits from undergoing Hysterectomy, including:

  • Pain relief
  • Improved quality of life
  • Increased sexual wellbeing
  • No more monthly periods
  • No more risk of developing certain cancers

Dr. Supriya Puranik will provide detailed information on the potential risks and benefits before surgery.

Recovery and Care

The recovery period after Hysterectomy depends on the type of procedure performed and the patient’s overall health. Our team ensures that patients are given the best post-operative care and support, including pain management, antibiotic therapy, and other helpful tips.

Emotional Support
