In brief: Yes

It is a neat procedure done on an outpatient basis.
It is considered a minimally invasive procedure and the post op recovery is quite rapid.

In brief: Yes

Laparoscopic vaginal hysterectomy and laparoscopically assisted vaginal hysterectomy (lavh) have been performed successfully and safely for over 2 decades.
Many studies show vaginal hysterectomy to be quickest, total abdominal hysterectomy to be technically easiest, and lavh to have the lowest complication rates.

In brief: Yes

It enabled people to have a less invasive procedure, hysterectomy did not require an incision.
Unfortunately, it has diminished some surgeons ability to do a vaginal hysterectomy without the laparoscope.
