Womb removal

Womb removal

The surgical removal of the uterus is known as a hysterectomy. Like all hysterectomies, a vaginal hysterectomy is carried out under either general anasthesia or spinal anaesthesia (epidural). A vaginal hysterectomy usually includes the removal of the neck of the uterus, called the cervix, as well as the body of your uterus. As the operation is performed through the vagina, there are no exterior surgical incisions. However, if there is a case for the ovaries to be removed as well, the a vaginal hysterectomy is not the best kind of hysterectomy.
