Laparoscopic Surgery

Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy

Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy (TLH) is an advanced laparoscopic procedure, also described as keyhole surgery. Most people are aware that gall bladders used to be removed through a large incision and patients remained in hospital for almost a week after surgery. With the development of more advanced laparoscopic techniques, this operation is seldom performed as most gall bladders are removed through keyhole surgery. In many cases, Total Abdominal Hysterectomy is able to be replaced by a laparoscopic approach utilising 4 small incisions. 


Vaginal Hysterectomy, of course, does not require any incisions in the abdomen but is not suitable for many women who require surgery. If the uterus is enlarged, if there is no prolapse, the woman has not had a vaginal delivery then a vaginal hysterectomy is a more difficult operation. TLH allows full visualisation of the pelvis at the time of surgery and can change a difficult vaginal procedure into a safer operation.
