Laparoscopic Supracervical HysterectomyLaparoscopic Supracervical Hysterectomy


Definition: As you are making decisions about your hysterectomy, you may consider keeping your cervix. A supracervical hysterectomy removes the uterus but leaves the cervix in place, which some research suggests may reduce the risk of pelvic organ prolapse and preserve sexual function. This is sometimes referred to as “partial hysterectomy.”

Acronym: LSH

Description of procedure: This procedure is done completely laparoscopically and does not remove the cervix. The uterus is cut up into small pieces and removed through the tubes which were inserted into the abdomen.

Indications/contra-indications: Not all women are candidates for laparoscopic hysterectomies and the decision to use this method must be made on an individual basis.

Initial Recovery: Expect 2 to 4 weeks of recovery, with some lifting and straining restrictions that could extend beyond this period.

Variations on a theme: It is also possible that your doctor will perform a Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy. In this case, the surgery will still be performed entirely laparoscopically, but the cervix will be removed.
