Vaginal hysterectomies have a shorter recovery time than traditional hysterectomies

Vaginal hysterectomies are a viable alternative to the traditional surgical hysterectomy. Vaginal hysterectomy or laparoscopic assisted vaginal hysterectomy involves removing the uterus through the vagina. Only a tiny incision in the abdomen is required. This means the recovery time is often much shorter, there are fewer complications and patients suffer less pain.
