Hysterectomy Procedures & Alternatives for Fayetteville, NC Patients
Hysterectomy, or removal of the uterus, is one of the most common surgical operations performed on women. Thanks to recent medical advances, hysterectomy recovery time has been minimized and some women can be treated with less invasive therapies that don’t require a hysterectomy procedure.
To discuss your symptoms and treatment options, contact our Fayetteville women’s health practice today to schedule an appointment. We’re committed to compassionate support and excellence in every aspect of care.
Vaginal & Laparoscopic Assisted Hysterectomies & Alternative Treatments
Dr. Schutzer, Highland OB/GYN’s board-certified gynecologic surgeon, specializes in minimally invasive hysterectomies and alternative procedures with the support of our caring Fayetteville, NC staff. Hysterectomies are done at Cape Fear Valley Medical Center and the Fayetteville Ambulatory Surgery Center.
Treatment options include total hysterectomy, partial hysterectomy and alternatives (for appropriate circumstances) such as endometrial ablation, myomectomy, hysteroscopy, hormone treatment and more.
Why a Hysterectomy?
If you have heavy bleeding, pass clots during your cycle or have periods that last longer than 7 days you may be a candidate for a hysterectomy or alternative treatment. Other reasons your OB/GYN physician may recommend a hysterectomy (or hysterectomy alternative) include:
- Cancer of the cervix, uterus or ovaries
- Chronic pelvic pain
- Uterine fibroids
- Uterine prolapse
Throughout your care at Highland OB/GYN, we’ll partner with you to determine the treatment that will serve you best. We believe that good communication is key to quality care – we’ll share our professional expertise to help you make an informed decision about your health.
