Laparoscopy and Hysteroscopy
/ Normal and Abnormal Female Anatomy
I first separate the upper structures and the blood supply from the
corpus (body of the uterus)
similar to the total hysterectomy. I then cut the corpus away from
the cervix. The metal
dilator was placed through the vagina into the cervix at the beginning
of the operation.
I “cook” the tissue in the inner lining of the cervix to help prevent
later spotting and bleeding at the time when menses would occur.
To minimize risk of later pregnancy, I suture the cervix closed.
I then suture the pelvic peritoneum over the
cervix and preserve both tubes and ovaries.
Bandaids are placed over the incisions. The patient
is discharged home the morning after surgery.
