Hysterectomy is the most commonly performed gynecological procedure with different surgical approaches; vaginal, abdominal, and laparoscopic. Each technique comes with advantages and disadvantages for both patients and surgeons. However, minimally invasive, or laparoscopic, hysterectomy offers one of the best clinical and cosmetic outcomes for patients in a majority of cases. Minimally invasive procedures only require a few small incisions, resulting in less postoperative pain compared to an abdominal hysterectomy. The smaller abdominal incisions also result in less scarring on the abdomen.
