Hysterectomy is one of the commonest surgeries done in women. It is a safe surgery and has low risks of complications. It can prove to be life-saving in case of cancer. It can effectively relieve symptoms of various diseases of the uterus and ovary (such as bleeding or discomfort related to fibroids, severe endometriosis or uterine prolapse). The risk of complication is low as the surgeons who perform them, do so on a regular basis, which improves their skills and helps improve outcomes for their patients. Also, many hysterectomy patients are otherwise healthy, which decreases the risk of complications during and after the procedure.
But every surgery has risks. Fortunately less than 10% of hysterectomy patients experience a major or minor complication, according to studies. The risks of complications are slightly more in women who undergo open abdominal hysterectomy than with the vaginal and laparoscopic abdominal procedures.
