Hysterectomy

Updated: MARCH 21, 2021

A hysterectomy is a surgery that is performed to remove the uterus. Depending on the type of hysterectomy (total or partial) it may also involve removing the ovaries, fallopian tubes, and cervix as well as other surrounding structures. A hysterectomy is the most commonly performed gynecological surgical procedure. There is some controversy surrounding their prevalence based on the belief that they may be unnecessarily performed.
