What is laparoscopic hysterectomy surgery?
A laparoscopic hysterectomy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure to remove the uterus and cervix with or without the ovaries. A small incision is made in the navel through which a tiny camera is inserted. The surgeon watches the image from this camera on a TV monitor while performing the procedure. Two to three other tiny incisions are made in the lower abdomen. Through these, specialized instruments are inserted and used for the removal process.
