Surgical approaches to hysterectomy

Abdominal hysterectomy
An incision is made on the stomach to have access to the uterus. This is the most common procedure to treat uterine cancer.
Vaginal hysterectomy
A small incision is made on the top of the vagina to remove the uterus. This method is less invasive and leads to a shorter hospital stay.
Laparoscopic hysterectomy
This is the least invasive method; 3 to 6 small cuts are made to the belly to insert the laparoscope and the special tools needed to remove the uterus.
