Laparoscopic technique reduces pain and recovery time for hysterectomy patients

Previously, hysterectomies required a long incision and a lengthy recovery. Many oncologists are now performing hysterectomies using a laparoscopic procedure which only requires several small incisions. The patient suffers less pain and a quicker recovery. This surgical technique can also be used for early stage cervical and ovarian cancer. The availability of the technique is limited by the number of trained surgeons.
