A hysterectomy, the surgical removal of the uterus, is a common surgical procedure usually performed by a gynaecologist and is widely available in the private hospitals in the UK.
The most common type of surgical procedure for hysterectomy, where the the body, fundus, and cervix of the uterus is removed is known as a total abdominal hysterectomy (TAH).
There is a relatively new type of hysterectomy operation, a “minimally invasive” procedure called laparoscopic supracervical hysterectomy or SCH, for short. SCH can greatly reduce hospital stay, postoperative pain, and recovery time when compared with older “traditional” surgical hysterectomy procedures.
