In brief: LAVH
Many studies show that complication rates are lowest for lavh compared to any other route for hysterectomy.
It is impractical to try to relate everything known about lavh here. There are many resources available - first and foremost would be your gynecologist for a full and complete discussion of lavh and other treatment options.

In brief: Big topic.
LAVH is a type of minimally invasive hysterectomy that combines laparoscopic and vaginal surgery.
Their are many techniques that can be utilized. Most women will recover in about two weeks. Energy level returns more slowly. LAVH can be performed as an outpatient or a short stay. Hope this helps.
