Dilitation and Curettage (D&C)
A hysterectomy is a procedure to remove the uterus. There are many reasons why you might need a hysterectomy including uterine fibroids that cause pain or other problems, uterine prolapse, cancer of the uterus, cervix, or ovaries, and other reasons. In some cases, only the uterus is removed. In other cases, one or both ovaries, and/or the fallopian tubes, may also be removed.
We offer laparoscopic hysterectomy, abdominal hysterectomy, and vaginal hysterectomy. There are good reasons why one type may be more appropriate for you instead of another, and each has its own benefits and risks. You should talk to your gynecologist about them to help make the best choice for you.
