A Hysterectomy is an operation to remove a woman's uterus. In India gynaecologist and surgeons use latest techniques like Laparoscope Assisted Vaginal Hysterectomy (LAVH) for doing Hysterectomy. Laparoscopically assisted vaginal hysterectomy (LAVH) is a surgical procedure using a laparoscope to guide the removal of the uterus and/or Fallopian tubes and ovaries through the vagina (birth canal). During a hysterectomy the surgeon may remove the entire uterus or just part of it. The fallopian tubes and ovaries may also be removed. Hysterectomy can be of many types that include:
Partial hysterectomy - only upper part of uterus removal is done
Total Hysterectomy - Uterus removal alongwith cervix is done
Radical Hysterectomy - Uterus along with cervix and ovaries are removed
In India the most advanced type of hysterectomy that is done is a Laparoscope Assisted Vaginal Hysterectomy (LAVH).
There are many reasons a for which a woman may need a hysterectomy. Gynaecologist may advise hysterectomy in following condtions:
Cancer of the uterus, cervix or the ovary
Childbirth complications, such as uncontrolled bleeding
Long-term (chronic) pelvic pain
Severe endometriosis that does not get better with other treatments
Severe, long-term vaginal bleeding that is not controlled with other treatments
Slipping of the uterus into the vagina (uterine prolapse)
Large Fibroids, which cause heavy, painful periods
This is done using a laparoscope to guide the removal of the uterus and/or Fallopian tubes and ovaries through the vagina (birth canal). However it may be noted that not all cases are fit for a laparoscopic assisted vaginal hysterectomy. The decision of the surgeon or the gynaecologist whether to go for a LAVH or abdmonial hysterectomy depends upon the reason for hysterectomy. The main objective is to have least possible blood loss and safety of patient.
Dr Sumita Singh and Dr Nutan Jain are the best exponents of Hysterectomy whether Laparoscopic Vaginal Hysterectomy or Abdominal Hystrectomy. They have vast experience in operating upon such cases. Dr Nutan Jain is an international figure and has trained more than 60% of gynaecologist in India. Dr Sumita Singh has more than 30 years of experience in the field of gynae surgery.
The cost of the hysterectomy depends upon the type of hysterectomy being done. The cost of an abdominal hysterectomy would be approximately USD 3800 to USD 4200 where as the cost for LAVH would be approximately USD 5000 to 5500 with 2-3 days stay in hospital. Post discharge stay in India would be for about 2 weeks. The complete recovery after the surgery usually takes anything between 5-6 weeks.
A good hospital needs to have qualified doctors with good experience. Most of the hospitals in the vicinity offer services of doctors who either do not have proper qualifications or do not possess requisite experience. We do not claim to be a tertiary care hospital providing services across all the streams of medicine and surgery but whatever service you get at Yashlok Hospital are first class in terms of quality.
We are probably the only hospital which has an inhouse Ultrasound and Colour Doppler facility. The hospital has state of art Digital X-Ray, ECG, Pathology Lab, Dental Centre, Physiotherapy Centre and Inhouse Pharmacy. The operating room at the hospital has the deployment of cutting edge technology which gives us the confidence of doing the most complex of the surgeries with relative ease.
Healthcare is a very different stream from any other service industry. People come to us only when they are in a problem which they are not able to understand. All our team members are thoroughly trained to provide the medical care with highest ethical standards and with compassion and empathy. The entire care programme is designed keeping the centricity of the patient in mind.
