Total Laparoscopic Radical Trachelectomy (TLRT)

Summary

Total Laparoscopic Radical Trachelectomy (TLRT)

This surgery is performed entirely laparoscopically (key-hole) via 4 tiny cuts in the tummy. This allows the removal of the cervix, surrounding tissue, top of the vagina and the lymph glands. The advantages of the key hole approach are: quicker recovery, less scarring, reduced pain, reduced amount of blood loss during surgery and quicker return to work. The key-hole approach also allows for better visualization of all the tissues to be removed because of increased magnification of the tissues on a high definition camera system.
