There are several types of hysterectomy procedures. Whenever possible, Mercy gynecological surgeons perform hysterectomies using minimally invasive surgical techniques that require fewer and smaller incisions than a conventional abdominal hysterectomy. If you need a hysterectomy, you and your doctor will determine the most appropriate type of surgery depending on your individual condition, overall health and other factors.
We understand that having a hysterectomy can be emotionally challenging for some women. Know that your Mercy team will be there for you from surgery through recovery to provide compassionate care and support.
