If you’ve ever been told that you are a candidate for a hysterectomy because of persistent and heavy bleeding or painful symptomatic fibroids, then the Laparoscopic Supracervical Hysterectomy (LSH) is good news for you. Mobile Ob-Gyn, P.C. is the only physician practice in Mobile and Baldwin Counties that offers a newer, safer alternative to the traditional abdominal hysterectomy. The LSH was designed to be the least invasive, least traumatic, and the quickest way to remove the uterus without adverse effects to either vaginal support or sexual function.
According to Dr. Robert Wood, the major benefit of LSH is the shorter recovery time. Most patients attain full recover in one-to-two-weeks compared to the four-to-six-week recovery with the traditional abdominal surgery. Other benefits of this procedure include shorter operating time, less bleeding, minimal tissue damage, no sutures, and less post-operative pain. It is also a much less invasive procedure than abdominal hysterectomy. This allows the cervix to remain intact, minimizing bladder and urinary tract complications that sometimes accompany the traditional hysterectomy procedure.
