Vaginal Hysterectomy

Plaza OB/GYN conducts vaginal hysterectomies for faster recovery and less scarring.

In a vaginal hysterectomy, no incision is made as the uterus is removed vaginally, and does not leave a visible scar. Furthermore, abdominal muscles are not stretched during the procedure, allowing for less pain and discomfort after the surgery. Plaza OB/GYN conducts vaginal hysterectomies at our state-of-the-art facility at the Binz Surgery Center. During a vaginal hysterectomy operation, our physicians can safely remove the uterus or fibroids.

Choosing a Vaginal Hysterectomy

Our expert doctors begin the operation without needing to create an incision in the vagina, compared to conventional abdominal hysterectomies. With the help of advanced tools, our doctors safely remove the uterus and keep the procedure nearly painless with swift recovery times. Vaginal hysterectomies are commonplace in women, especially as health complications and symptoms begin to appear. Among the common reasons for undergoing a vaginal hysterectomy include:

Similar to a laparoscopically-assisted hysterectomy, women have the option to remove the ovaries or other organs. If the patient chooses to undergo a vaginal hysterectomy, there is an elevated risk of injury to other organs and should not be administered if risks of cancer exist in the uterus, ovaries or cervix.

Benefits of a Vaginal Hysterectomy

With vaginal hysterectomies becoming safer and more commonplace, they provide women with inherent benefits compared to other forms of treatment. Some of the benefits of our procedure include:

  • No incision created in the vagina
  • Less pain than other procedures
  • Swift recovery time and shorter hospital stay
  • No scars or any visible marks
  • Enriched sex life

Conventional abdominal hysterectomies make large incisions to remove the uterus, organs or growths. Patients undergoing this type of hysterectomy have longer and frequently more painful recovery times. Furthermore, the procedure can leave visible scars across the abdomen area.

At Plaza OB/GYN, our veteran doctors are prepared to perform high-level vaginal hysterectomies for women in the Houston area. In addition to the vaginal hysterectomy procedure, Plaza OB/GYN provides patients with a minimally-invasive laparoscopically-assisted hysterectomy for faster recovery.
