What is a laparoscopic hysterectomy and when is it recommended?

Laparoscopic hysterectomy involves the surgical removal of the uterus using delicate instruments inserted through 5-10mm incisions in the pelvic area.
The uterus is made up of two parts: the cervix and the uterine body. In most cases, the entire uterus is removed, but in some patients, a subtotal hysterectomy is performed. This means, the uterine body is removed, and the cervix is kept intact.

Advantages of Laparoscopic Hysterectomy

The main advantage is usually in the shorter recovery times. Therefore, patients often return to their daily lives sooner compared to surgery performed through a conventional large incision.

This is thanks to the fact that the procedure is performed through small holes in the abdominal region. This technique is known as laparoscopic hysterectomy.

How long do I have to be admitted?

Normally, in the absence of postoperative complications, patients can be discharged on the same day as surgery. However, if necessary, patients can sleep in the hospital that same night.


How long does it take to perform a laparoscopic hysterectomy?

The duration of a laparoscopic hysterectomy usually varies according to the complexity of each case. In general terms, the average time is usually 60 – 90 minutes. In all cases, patients require general anesthesia to perform the procedure.

How to prepare for a laparoscopic hysterectomy?

Usually, hospital admission is made a few hours before the same day of the surgical intervention.
However, in those cases where an intestinal resection can be foreseen and a special preparation must be carried out, admission will be made the day before surgery.
In case you come from outside Valencia or Spain, and it is more convenient for you, you can also enter the day before the surgery.
In our clinic, you can have more detailed information about the hospital admission process.

Previous abdominal surgeries

Uterus size greater than 12 cm

Overweight the patient

Associated diseases: diabetes, heart attack, heart valve replacement, collagen problems, etc.

The main complications are divided into:

A- Complications during surgery:

Bladder injury.

Ureteral injury.

Bowel injury.

Vascular bleeding.

B- After surgery:

Surgical wound infection.

Vaginal infection.

Vesicovaginal fistula: the fistula is a communication conduit between two organs and usually occurs when the tissues heal after surgery.

Recto-vaginal fistula.

During the procedure

Family members will be able to stay in the same room throughout the surgery without the need to go to any special waiting room. In case of surgeries lasting more than two hours, Dr. Lucas Minig will contact the relatives to report the evolution of the surgery.

After completion of the surgical procedure, Dr. Minig together with his team comes to the room to personally inform all family members of the results of the surgery. There, all the relevant aspects can be discussed and any doubts about it can be clarified.

Aftercare and recovery

The patient will return to the room after having completed the “anesthetic awakening” process, around 30-45 minutes after the end of the surgery.

All rooms are single and have an additional bed for a companion.

The patient may be discharged the same day of the intervention or the next morning, depending on her preferences and postoperative recovery.

Dr. Minig will personally visit the patient on the same day of the intervention, after a few hours, to explain the results of the surgery. Then, he will visit her daily until discharge from the hospital.

Frequently Asked Questions About Laparoscopic Hysterectomy

How to return to daily activity after a laparoscopic hysterectomy??

Currently, there is no scientific evidence that restricting movement after laparoscopic hysterectomy increases the possibility of postoperative complications.

In this way, patients can go back to their daily activities and the usual movements they used to do before surgery in a progressive way. Here you can find more informative information, as much as the pain allows it.

How to care for surgical wounds after surgery?

The 5mm incisions are closed with self-absorbing stitches that go under the skin (invisible). Therefore, it is not necessary to remove them after surgery.

Small wounds are covered with adhesive strips to improve the healing process and ensure that there are a few marks as possible on the skin. Finally, all the small incisions are covered with a transparent and waterproof dressing. This will allow the patient to shower without the inconvenience of getting the wounds wet and avoiding daily dressings.

After 7 days, the same patient at home will pull off these dressings and she will be able to discover for herself all the wounds that will be already healed. Then, no special care is necessary in this regard.

Am I going to be in menopause after a hysterectomy?

No. Removing the uterus is not associated with postoperative menopause because it has no hormonal function.

Only those women who have their ovaries removed, which are the organs that produce estrogen and progesterone, enter menopause after surgery.

Doctor Minig has operated on me for ovarian cancer. It was a long and difficult surgery, a little over two months ago now, from which I have recovered very well. Every day I think about how lucky I have been to have the opportunity to have surgery by Dr. Minig. The attention received at all times by him and his team has been unbeatable. From the first moment I do not imagine myself in other hands.

Ovarian tumor hysterectomy – Dr Lucas Minig.
I was operated on for breast cancer on June 19, 1995. After four operations, anguish, fear, and worry reappeared. On March 26, 2012, Dr. Lucas Minig performed a laparoscopic hysterectomy on me. Choosing Dr Minig and his team was the best decision I could have made. My recovery was amazing and surprising: the day of the operation I was able to sleep at home!
