Minimally Invasive Hysterectomy
If you’ve been advised to get a full or partial hysterectomy, you may be feeling anxious. Having your uterus and possibly fallopian tubes and ovaries removed is major surgery that may send you into early menopause. The good news is that hysterectomy can alleviate painful symptoms and remove troubling growths.
