How it Works
A minimally invasive surgery to address a variety of concerns.
During an initial visit with WCJC, our providers will discuss the pros and cons of the options you have when it comes to your Laparoscopic Hysterectomy. We will also provide you with pre-operative instructions and schedule your surgery for a day and time that works best for your schedule.
Our doctors perform Laparoscopic or Robotic Hysterectomies in Kansas City in a surgical facility under general anesthesia. The procedure itself takes one to three hours, during which we will make an incision in or around the belly button and also the lower abdomen to enable placements of the camera (where the term “laparoscopic” comes from) and instruments. From there, we will remove the uterus, as well as the ovaries and/or cervix, if desired.
Medically advanced technology that enables us to give you the answers you need to make the best decision.
After healing from a Laparoscopic or Robotic Hysterectomy in Kansas City, most of our patients find they experience a significant improvement in pain, heavy bleeding, and other symptoms associated with their fibroids (associated with their uterus). Plus, a Laparoscopic Hysterectomy is a much more minimally invasive procedure compared to other types of Hysterectomy. As a result, patients notice less blood loss, less scarring and less post-operative pain. Many of our patients also enjoy being able to return home after surgery rather than a longer hospital stay; as well as returning to work sooner.
