Hospital Stay for Hysterectomy

From the Pre-Op Hysterectomy Articles List

How long is hospital length for hysterectomy?What is the usual length of hospitalization for a hysterectomy?


The length of hospitalization for a hysterectomy varies from woman to woman, based on a number of considerations including the type of surgery, reason(s) for the surgery, age, overall health, and
other contributing factors.

For LSH and other minimally-invasive procedures, same-day release or just one night in the hospital is common.

For TVH patients, the stay is generally 2–3 days.

Most TAH patients, and those who have procedures that include repairs, stay in the hospital for 3–4 days.

Each patient needs to ask her own doctor for the projected length of her hospital stay in order to plan accordingly.
