Gynecologist in Costa Rica, Doctor in discussion with patientA laparoscopically assisted vaginal hysterectomy is a procedure that is commonly used for treating serious conditions of the uterus.  These may include unexplained bleeding, pain, cancer, or others.

Although the procedure is very low risk, it remains expensive and the cost is out of reach for many women in the USA.  Since the surgery may be vital for them, it is natural that they look for safe and inexpensive alternatives.  Coming to Costa Rica is one of them.  We have experienced and trained surgeons that work in fully accredited hospitals that comply with the highest international quality standards in health care.

The surgery involves the removal of the uterus.  It is recommended in cases where, for some reason, the best approach is removal through the vagina.  The surgeon makes a small incision in the area and introduces a small camera called a laparascope, that displays the images on a monitor.  With the aid of the camera, he or she operates to remove the uterus (and in some cases, the ovaries or cervix) with the use of micro instruments.

After the procedure, the patient needs to rest for a few days.  International patients usually stay for at least a week, although complete recovery requires several weeks.  It is recommended to bring a companion who will assist you with basic activities during the first days after the surgery, or in the alternative, stay at one of the surgical recovery centers with nursing care.

We know how devastating it can be to have a serious condition and not be able to afford the health care that you need.  That’s why we have developed contacts with experienced surgeons and well equipped Class A hospitals in Costa Rica.  Contact us today in order to move on to the next step in your plans, and let us help you make all the arrangements for your surgery.
