Hysterectomy

What is a hysterectomy?

The meaning of a hysterectomy is major surgery for uterus removal. It is performed to treat conditions that affect your reproductive system when other treatments haven’t worked.

Hysterectomy offers treatment for:

  • fibroids (non-cancerous tumours)
  • heavy periods
  • long-term pelvic pain
  • uterine prolapse (weak uterine support causes your uterus to drop down from its normal position)
  • endometriosis (cells that line the womb end up in other areas of your body and reproductive system)
  • ovarian cancers or cancer of the womb or cervix.
