Hysterectomy

A hysterectomy is the surgical removal of the uterus. Depending on the type of hysterectomy, other pelvic organs or tissues may also be removed. The types of hysterectomy Youngstown, Ohio include:

-Subtotal or supracervical hysterectomy: The uterus is removed, but not the cervix.

-Total or complete hysterectomy: Both the uterus and the cervix are removed.

-Total hysterectomy plus unilateral salpingo-oophorectomy: This procedure removes the uterus, cervix, one ovary and one fallopian tube, while one ovary and one fallopian tube are left in place.
