Hysterectomy: Overview and Options at PGOMG
In the most basic terms, a hysterectomy is the surgical removal of the uterus. This procedure is usually a last resort for women who have tried other medical or surgical treatments for benign disease. There are four different types of hysterectomies and several different methods in which these surgeries are performed.
Only removal of the ovaries will cause a patient to begin surgically induced menopause.
There are alternatives to a hysterectomy. PGOMG providers plan, discuss, and prepare potential hysterectomy patients thoroughly so they are fully aware of all of the options available to them.
