Laparoscopic Hysterectomy

This procedure involves placing a long metal tube through your belly button that has a light and a camera on it (called a "laparoscope").  We then place smaller incisions (about a half inch) down near the bikini line to place instruments to do the surgery. The uterus is removed vaginally, like birthing a small baby.  The recovery from this surgery is faster and the scars much smaller.  This video is a good example of this technique.  Please note it contains videos of real surgery and may not be
