Vaginal hysterectomy may also be performed minimally invasive, laparoscopic, way. In the abdominal cavity through a small incision in the navel area introduced a special tube with a camera attached to it, which allows the surgeon throughout the procedure to see the magnified image of the internal organs of women. Then the doctor makes two small incisions in the abdomen and inserts them into small thin tool and conducts dissection of blood vessels, ligaments and fallopian tubes. Once the surgeon is completely separated from the rest of the uterus tissue, it removes it through the incision made at the vaginal apex. rehabilitation after laparoscopic surgery to remove the cancer of the uterus is about 2 weeks and the period of hospitalization - only one day.

For any of the above operations is applied overall or local anesthesia.
