hysterectomy in Dubai

A hysterectomy is a surgery to remove the uterus. Typically, it is recommended when you lose the ability to become pregnant, have fibroids or tumors, or do not menstruate anymore.

What is a hysterectomy?

A hysterectomy removes the uterus, with or without the cervix, fallopian tubes, and ovaries, depending on your reason for the surgery. 

This surgery helps alleviate abnormal bleeding, uterine prolapse, fibroids and cancer. The recovery takes four to six weeks on average, depending on the partial or complete hysterectomy you have.

Types of hysterectomy

Hysterectomy is of the following types:

  • Total hysterectomy: In this, the uterus and cervix are removed completely. Total hysterectomy is further divided into:
  • Supracervical hysterectomy: In this, the upper uterus is removed while the cervix is left.
  • Radical hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy: This hysterectomy is done as part of cancer treatment. In this, the uterus, cervix, fallopian tubes, ovaries, lymph nodes, surrounding tissues, and the upper portion of the vagina are removed.

Methods of hysterectomy procedure

It starts with a diagnosis. Dr. Mustafa will ask about your issues and examine your pelvis before recommending a hysterectomy. After knowing your preference for hysterectomy type, he will make a suitable plan for the procedure.

Dr. Mustafa will explain the surgery to you. He will ask you to wear an operation gown and sedate you with anesthesia before surgery to numb pain. Here are the hysterectomy procedures based on how they are performed.

Vaginal hysterectomy

The doctor makes an incision at the top of your vagina and removes the uterus through the vagina- without any external incision outside the skin. This method is commonly recommended for uterine prolapse or for removing non-malignant tumors. It has the fewest complications, and the recovery is fast in a few weeks. It is a day procedure.

Laparoscopic hysterectomy

The surgery is done with a laparoscope inserted in the lower belly through a small incision made in the belly button. The laparoscope is a thin tube with a camera to show continuous real-time images on the screen. Other surgical tools are also inserted slowly through several other small incisions. The uterus is cut and removed in multiple small pieces through abdominal incisions or vagina. Recovery is shorter and less painful than an open abdominal hysterectomy.

Robotic-assisted laparoscopic hysterectomy

It is a very advanced and latest surgical procedure, done with the help of a robotic machine. In this, the robot assists the surgeon in doing laparoscopic surgery. A laparoscope is inserted through a small incision in the abdomen and monitored. The robotic arms and instruments are diligently controlled by the surgeon to make incisions and perform the laparoscopic hysterectomy in Dubai.

Open-Abdominal hysterectomy

It is a traditional hysterectomy approach. The uterus is removed through a six- to the eight-inch-long incision in your abdomen. A T-shaped incision from the belly button to your pubic bone or across the public hairline. Once the surgery is complete, Dr. Mustafa closes the incision with dissolvable sutures. It is recommended if a tumor or cancer is involved or the uterus has swelled with a disease or fibroids. It requires a longer hospital stay and recovery time.

What to expect: Recovery and aftercare

The procedure is one to three hours long. You can expect the following:
