You will be glad to know that there are several types of minimally invasive hysterectomy surgeries, to help you get back on your feet quickly.

How a Minimally Invasive Hysterectomy Can Help You

Minimally invasive hysterectomy surgery, also known as MIH, can be performed either vaginally or laparoscopically. Consider these five types of minimally invasive hysterectomy procedures:

A laparoscopic supracervical hysterectomy, also known as LSH. This procedure uses a laparoscope and small instruments, which are inserted through small incisions in the navel and abdomen. The uterus is removed through one of the incisions. An LSH is an outpatient procedure, with discharge occurring within 24 hours.

A total laparoscopic hysterectomy, also known as a TLH. During a TLH, the uterus and cervix are removed through the vagina. A TLH is also an outpatient procedure, with discharge occurring within 24 hours.

A laparoscopically assisted vaginal hysterectomy, also known as an LAVH. During an LAVH, a tiny camera is inserted through a small incision to view the uterus. An incision is made at the top of the vagina, and the uterus and cervix are removed through the incision.

A vaginal hysterectomy is also known as a VH. During a VH, a small incision is made at the top of the vagina, and the uterus and cervix are removed through the vagina.

A robotic-assisted total hysterectomy uses laparoscopic instruments attached to a robotic system. The surgeon uses a console to perform the hysterectomy, removing the uterus through the vagina or laparoscopic incisions.

After your MIH, plan on spending at least two weeks without lifting. but there are no restrictions on walking. If the hysterectomy was performed abdominally, you will need to avoid lifting and strenuous activity for about six weeks. Minimally invasive hysterectomy surgeries typically cause minimal scarring, and the recovery time is much shorter than conventional hysterectomy surgery.
