What will happen during LAVH surgery?Nate Deisler
Your pelvic area may be shaved, and you’ll be given anesthesia. When you’re asleep, your surgeon will make a small incision in your belly and insert a small camera (laparoscope) to view the operation on a monitor, and a harmless gas will be put into your abdomen to expand the area around your organs. If your surgeon thinks the LAVH surgery can be accomplished successfully, other small incisions will be made to small tools—scissors, forceps, clamps, and others—can be inserted. Your surgeon will cut the uterus from the vagina and remove the uterus through the cut. The cuts are then all closed with stitches, and the operation is complete.
