Laparoscopic assisted vaginal hysterectomy

Overview

In a laparoscopic assisted vaginal hysterectomy, vaginal hysterectomy is performed with the aid of a laparoscope, a thin, flexible tube containing a video camera. Thin tubes are inserted through tiny incisions in the abdomen near the navel. The uterus is then removed in sections through the laparoscope tube or through the vagina.

Laparoscopic hysterectomy may be performed using a robotic system controlled by the surgeon. This robotic technique offers improved visualization, precision, and control during the operation. Since the introduction of the robotic technology, more patients have been able to undergo a minimally invasive surgical procedure and thus avoid a large incision.
