HysterSisters Hysterectomy Articles
Your first decision - What type of hysterectomy is best for you?
Different types of hysterectomy are tailored to a specific set of health needs and surgeon skills. With today's advancing technology and experienced surgeons, most women are candidates for minimally invasive surgery. Minimally invasive surgery typically allows for faster recovery and fewer complications. Vaginal hysterectomy, laparoscopic hysterectomy, and robotic hysterectomy are examples of minimally invasive hysterectomy options.
Ask your surgeon: Am I a candidate for minimally invasive hysterectomy? If the answer is no, ask "Why not?". Seek a second opinion of a specialized GYN surgeon for additional surgery options.

HysterSisters Recommends Get a Second Opinion
Get a Second Opinion - ALWAYS!
HysterSisters recommends that you get more than one opinion when your doctor suggests a hysterectomy. You may have a trustful long-standing history with your doctor and feel horrified that we suggest such a thing! This isn't a slap in the face for your personal physician but a smart thing for every patient to do.
Set up an appointment with a different surgeon in a different practice and even perhaps in a different town. Take your records with you but also ask for an exam. Ask if the first recommendation is appropriate. Ask for alternative suggestions.
Get a third opinion. You might find the third suggests an even less invasive solution or an alternative treatment to completely avoid surgery.
The key is for you, the patient, to get all the information you can before you agree to surgery. You cannot change your mind once the surgery is done. There are no money back guarantees if the surgery is not the cure for your problem. Be smart. Do your homework.
