What is Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy (TLH)?

Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy (TLH), also called keyhole surgery, is a modern surgical technique of removal of uterus through small incisions (0.5 to 1cms), in contrast to large incisions used in traditional (open) surgery. The surgery is performed under general anaesthesia. Small size of incisions results in reduced post-operative pain, less blood loss, faster recovery and shorter hospital stay.

What is the difference between TLH and LAVH?

In expert hands the risk is minimal. But as per the world wide statistics, there is a small possibility of mechanical or thermal injury to the bladder, bowel or blood vessels. In most situations, these injuries can be treated laparoscopically.

What is the recovery period following laparoscopic hysterectomy?

There is minimum discomfort after TLH / LAVH. Patients are discharged within 24 to 48 hours of surgery.They may resume light work within 1-2 days & are ready to return to full activity within 15 days of laparoscopy.
