Position during Hysterectomy

From the Pre-Op Hysterectomy Articles List

SHARING IS CARING


Position during hysterectomyMy surgery is upcoming and I’m trying to picture the position I will be in during the operation itself.

For abdominal procedures, patients are typically placed in one of two positions:
  • The Supine Position: flat on your back, just like you lie on a bed, with your legs together, or
  • The Trendelenburg Position: flat on your back, head slightly tilted toward the floor, with your legs strapped flat to the table
For vaginal procedures, patients are placed in the "Frog Leg" or Lithotomy Position—feet up in stirrups and thighs pulled back (toward your head)—because the surgeon needs easy access through the vagina.
