Terminology: Hysterectomy is removal of the uterus and the cervix generally. On rare occasions an obgyn cannot remove the lowest part of the uterus and performs a supracervical hysterectomy. If the ovaries and tubes are removed abdominally along with the uterus, the procedure is called a tahbso (total abdominal hysterectomy bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy).

No: If in doubt, check with your doctor or just get a copy of your pathology report. Some surgeons do perform supra cervical hysterectomy - leaving the cervix in place.
