Gynecological surgeons remove your uterus and other parts of your reproductive system, such as the cervix, ovaries, or fallopian tubes, depending on the specific medical condition a woman has.
Depending on the medical condition, there are four possible hysterectomies that a surgeon may perform .
The surgeon removes your uterus, cervix, the top portion of your vagina, most of the tissue surrounding the cervix, and sometimes the pelvic lymph nodes. A radical hysterectomy is only performed when cancer is present.
Hysterectomy with Oophorectomy
The surgeon removes your uterus, one or both of your ovaries, and sometimes your fallopian tubes.
After a hysterectomy, a woman can no longer have menstrual periods or become pregnant.
