Anesthesia | Which Anesthesia Is Best for Hysterectomy?

From the Pre-Op Hysterectomy Articles List

Anesthesia during HysterectomyIs one type of anesthesia better than others? How do I choose which one is right for my hysterectomy?

Every anesthesia choice has its own pros and cons, and every woman has her own particular situation surrounding her hysterectomy that will affect her options. There is no “one size fits all.” Instead, anesthesia decisions are made on a case-by-case basis to accommodate the unique circumstances of each patient.

In determining which anesthesia is right for you, your anesthesiologist will consider many variables—each of them important. Because each variable can make a difference in the anesthesia used, it is important that you are completely open and honest with your anesthesiologist.


Some of the variables involved may include:
  • Your hysterectomy type
  • Your health condition
  • Your history with anesthesia
  • The needs of the surgeon
  • The skill of the anesthesiologist
  • Your wishes

When talking to your anesthesiologist before your hysterectomy, you should discuss all of the criteria on the list above. Your anesthesiologist should also evaluate you and then go over the anesthetic plan and options (if any) that are available for your anesthetic.

At that point, you can ask any questions you might have and make any decisions regarding method of anesthesia. Your anesthesiologist plays a big role in keeping you safe and comfortable during your surgery and can help ease your anxiety, so don’t hesitate to bring up any concerns you may have so he can work with you.
