Remove uterus: The uterus is visualized through a telescope placed in the abdomen and it's attachments are severed through the laparoscope. Then the remainder of the surgery is completed by detaching remaining uterine connections through the vagina. The back of the vagina is repaired and then one looks back through the laparoscope to make sure that there is no excessive bleeding.
