In brief: Yes

The most common reason for leaving the cervix is patient request.
Current medical evidence doesn't suggest any advantages to leaving the cervix, though sexual function or bladder function were concerns in the past. If the cervix is left, the uterus must be removed by morcellation which can be a tedious and time-consuming endeavor, especially with a large uterus.
