About Hysterectomies

When there is a condition affecting the uterus and the symptoms are causing a decrease in your quality of life, it may time to consider a hysterectomy. At Women's Health at Valley View, our team of skilled OB/GYNs may recommend a hysterectomy when other treatments may have not been effective or if you are looking for a permanent form of birth control. Through varying surgical techniques, a hysterectomy is a procedure that removes part or all of the uterus, which can eliminate subsequent conditions, such as fibroids, pelvic organ prolapse, or endometriosis. To learn more, we invite you to schedule a private consultation at one of our locations in Glenwood Springs, Basalt, or Silt, CO to learn more about a hysterectomy. 

Treatment Options

At Women's Health at Valley View, our team of board-certified OB/GYNs performs hysterectomies utilizing various surgical methods. 

Traditional/Open Hysterectomy
As the most common technique utilized for a hysterectomy, a traditional or open surgical procedure includes the use of a single large incision made across the abdomen. Through this incision, the uterus is removed and the area is stitched closed. 

Laparoscopic Hysterectomy
Using a laparoscope, a tube-like device with a camera attached to it, a laparoscopic hysterectomy typically only involves three small incisions to the abdomen. Through these small incisions, the uterus is removed. With a laparoscopic hysterectomy, the recovery process is usually much quicker.

What to Expect

Following a hysterectomy, you will not be able to get pregnant and will no longer experience a menstrual period. Depending on your existing conditions, the fallopian tubes or ovaries may also be removed during a hysterectomy. Despite your age, when the ovaries are removed, your body will enter menopause. Whatever the reason for your hysterectomy, our team of specialists will educate you on your procedure options and provide you with information on what you can expect before, during, and after a partial or full hysterectomy. We also understand that a surgical treatment option may not be right for every patient, which is why we typically recommend less invasive forms of treatment prior to a surgical procedure.

Improve Your Health

When other treatment options have failed or if you are looking for a permanent form of birth control, a hysterectomy may be a good procedure option for you. Our team of board-certified OG/GYNs can help you understand your various treatment options, as well as the process involved with a hysterectomy. Contact one of our Colorado locations to learn more and to schedule your initial consultation.
