Better than open
Laparoscopic hysterectomy is performed when vaginal hysterectomy
may be very difficult and one wants to avoid a major open surgery.
This typically rquires 3 or 4 small incisions in the abdomen. You may go home the same day or stay in the hospital overnight. Your recovery will be significantly faster comapred to abdominal route. Open abdomial hysterectomy is rarely necessary today.
