What is all about Abdominal Hysterectomy?

A hysterectomy alone means the removal of the uterus. There are two ways that the surgeon can operate 1. Laparoscopically (key hole) where the uterus is removed by 1 to 4 small incisions in the abdomen to allow the surgical instruments to enter the abdominal cavity. 2. Abdominal is where the surgeon accesses the abdominal cavity by way of a six inch incision in your stomach. Recovery time from abdominal surgery is usually longer and you are left with a larger scar than with laparoscopic surgery.
