Abnormal Periods

Abnormal periods are a common reason for seeking a hysterectomy. However, the vast majority of women are successfully treated either by medicines which reduce the pain and the flow, or by simple procedures such as the insertion of the hormone coil (Mirena), or by outpatient or daycase procedures to destroy the womb lining. In current gynaecological practice, only a small minority of women need to resort to a hysterectomy. For those that do, almost all can be offered robotic hysterectomy with the inherent benefits that it provides.

Currently the vast majority in this country are carried out through the open “bikini-line” cut because the gynaecologists carrying them out do not have adequate confidence to do them vaginally (without any abdominal cut) or by conventional laparoscopic (keyhole) technique.
