Hysterectomy

A hysterectomy, or surgery to remove the uterus, is a very common surgery among women in the United States, second only to caesarean section. About one-third of American women will have a hysterectomy by the time they are 60, according to healthywoman.org. Reasons for performing a hysterectomy include: uterine fibroids, abnormal bleeding, pelvic support problems, such as uterine prolapse, chronic pelvic pain and tome types of female cancers.

At Salina Women’s Clinic, we can perform hysterectomies using several methods. Your hysterectomy may be performed through the vagina, through an abdominal incision, or with laparoscopy using the da Vinci Surgical System. The route of your hysterectomy depends on both your diagnosis and your body.

We have been performing hysterectomies using the innovative da Vinci surgical technology, exclusively at Salina Regional Health Center since 2009, and are experts in this procedure with more than 1,000 da Vinci hysterectomies to our credit. The da Vinci procedure can mean less pain, shorter hospital stays and faster recoveries for patients.

Your surgery will be performed at Salina Regional Health Center.
