Hysterectomies at Pella Regional

A hysterectomy is the surgical removal of a woman’s uterus. At Pella Regional, we use advanced technology with the da Vinci® robot-assisted surgery whenever possible. If you need a hysterectomy, your doctor may recommend one of these approaches:

  • Open hysterectomy removes the uterus through a large incision in your lower abdomen. This approach often needs a longer hospital stay and recovery.
  • Laparoscopic hysterectomy uses a small cameras and very small incisions to remove the uterus, which reduces recovery time to just days.
  • Robot-assisted hysterectomy uses one small incision to remove the uterus, which leads to less pain after surgery and gives you a quicker recovery.
  • Vaginal hysterectomy removes the uterus through the vagina. There is no abdominal incision, but not all patients can have this surgery.
