In brief: Same

The position of the uterus does not change the process or procedure when performing a hysterectomy - the surgery would be the same

You don't need a hysterectomy just because you have a retroverted uterus so I am hoping that that is not the reason for your surgery. 5% of women are known to have it. Please see your Dr to clarify the reason for your surgery.

In brief: Depends on route

20% of women have a retroverted uterus.
By itself it usually isn't a reason for hysterectomy. Its done the same way as all other hysterectomies. Extreme retroversion with retroflexion might make it slightly harder to do during laparoscopic or vaginal, but in general it doesn't pose a problem.
