Hysterectomy Q & A

Simi Obstetrics & Gynecology Medical Group

What is hysterectomy?

A hysterectomy is a surgical procedure to remove a woman's uterus. It can be an open procedure, which requires a large abdominal incision, or a laparoscopic procedure, which is considered minimally invasive. In some cases, the physician will recommend removing the ovaries during a hysterectomy.

Why would a woman need a hysterectomy?

Women may need a hysterectomy for several conditions, including:

  • Uterine fibroids
  • Uterine prolapse
  • Cancer
  • Endometriosis
  • Abnormal bleeding
  • Chronic pelvic pain

The physicians at Simi Obstetrics and Gynecology Medical Group consider a hysterectomy only when other treatment approaches have failed.

How can an OB/GYN help with hysterectomy preparation?

An OB/GYN is the only type of doctor qualified to perform a hysterectomy. By choosing a caring team of medical professionals, you can enter surgery knowing what to expect.

At Simi Obstetrics and Gynecology Medical Group, the physicians help women understand why they need a hysterectomy and how to prepare for surgery and recovery adequately.

These doctors also exhaust all other possible treatment options before opting for surgery, ensuring you receive the best possible care. And, when they do perform surgery, they opt for the least invasive method, giving you the speediest recovery.

What is recovery from hysterectomy like?

Many women feel relief after the surgery because it reduces the symptoms substantially.

Modern surgical techniques mean recovering from a hysterectomy takes much less time than it used to. After surgery, you should plan to rest for a few weeks as your body heals. Some pain and bruising are normal, and your physician will prescribe pain medications to help.

If your ovaries are removed, you will enter menopause, and your physician will talk to you about your treatment options.

Having surgery is always a bit frightening, but the caring team at Simi Obstetrics and Gynecology Medical Group will help to prepare you. Schedule a consultation to discuss your hysterectomy and what you can expect before and after surgery today.
