A laparoscopic hysterectomy is a surgical procedure to treat several serious conditions in the uterus, such as uterine fibroids, cancer in the uterus or the ovaries, abnormal bleeding, and many others. The surgery is complex, although it is a considered a standard one and low risk. Almost no patients suffer from complications from the procedure. However, several tests may be required in order to verify that it’s the most appropriate solution.
The laparoscopic hysterectomy procedure involves the removal of the uterus. Depending on the patient’s condition, the ovaries or the cervix might be removed as well. The exact procedure will depend on the requirements of the surgery, although all of them will involve the use of a laparoscope, a small camera that allows the surgeon to operate internally with the use of micro instruments without the need of a large open incision.
Total recovery can take up to 6 weeks or more. Visitors to Costa Rica are advised to stay at least one week before taking a flight back home and to bring a companion with them as they will need help with basic activities during the first days after the surgery. Note that in some cases, the procedure may result in menopause. However, the majority of women report improvement in their primary condition after surgery.
