Radical hysterectomy: performed in women with cervical cancer in early stages. It involves removing the uterus with part of its surrounding tissue (parametrium) near the bladder, rectum, and pelvic wall. This procedure is accompanied by the removal of pelvic lymph nodes (pelvic lymphadenectomy). This is a highly complex surgical procedure that must be performed by oncologist gynecologists with sufficient surgical training to minimize the complications of the procedure.
The organs of the pelvis, like the other organs of the body, are innervated by autonomic nerves. This means that they are nerves that our consciousness cannot control and whose function is to control rectal and bladder emptying, as well as to generate orgasm during intercourse. During a radical hysterectomy, by severing the tissue surrounding the uterus, the autonomic nerves are often involuntarily severed since they are very delicate. However, by a careful surgical technique these nerves can be preserved, decreasing the possibility of post-operative complications.
We are committed to the development of innovative surgical techniques to perform a radical hysterectomy for cervical or uterine cancer. In this sense, laparoscopic mini-invasive surgery represents the best example of technological development to ensure the best surgical results with faster and safer patient recovery. We perform this procedure in almost 100% of patients by using a laparoscopic mini-invasive approach.
How do I have to prepare for the surgery?
How long do I have to be admitted?
Normally, in absences of postoperative complications, the hospitalization time is usually one day. In some cases, patients can be discharged the same day of surgery.
During admission, all patients will be seen by us to ensure the best and fastest recovery.
Is movement restriction necessary after surgery?
