Total laparoscopic hysterectomy (womb removal)

Total laparoscopic hysterectomy (womb removal) can help for heavy periods, pelvic pain, prolapse of the uterus and cancer of the womb, ovaries or cervix.

Doctor speaking to female patient in consultation

Total laparoscopic hysterectomy is a keyhole hysterectomy performed through tiny cuts in the tummy using small, modern cutting instruments to diminish the damage to the skin and the pelvic tissues.

Keyhole surgery has several advantages when compared with tummy cut hysterectomy (abdominal hysterectomy), although both procedures are safe and effective. 

Most people who need a hysterectomy can have it performed with keyhole surgery. Common reasons for having  a hysterectomy are:

  • Heavy periods (where other treatment options have not helped)
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Endometriosis
  • Chronic pelvic inflammation
  • Prolapse
  • Cancer of the uterus, cervix or ovary
  • Precancerous changes of cervix or uterus

A total laparoscopic hysterectomy starts from £8,775.

Our price package includes the cost of your surgery and all appropriate aftercare appointments. Our costs include all surgery fees and aftercare appointments with our consultants.

However, any pre-surgery diagnostic tests and your consultant’s outpatient appointment consultation fee are charged separately. We provide fixed term monthly payment plans over one to five years with no deposit required. If you decide to pay over 12 months, you will pay interest-free. If you are paying for a longer period, you will pay 9.9% APR.

Our flexible payment options help you spread the cost of your payment across a time period that suits you. More details on our flexible payment options can be found here.

*This is a guide price for patients who are paying for their own treatment. The actual cost of your treatment will be confirmed in writing at the time of booking.

Recovery is faster after a keyhole hysterectomy than after a tummy cut (laparotomy) because there is smaller trauma to the skin and tissues in the pelvis.

The average hospital stay is one to two days. The majority of patients resume their normal activity very quickly. This could be an important factor for those looking after their children, needing to go back to work, and those who would like to enjoy their full, active life as soon as possible.

The benefits of keyhole surgery are:

  • Shorter hospital day (1-2 days)
  • Faster recovery back to normal (2-3 weeks sick leave only)
  • Less blood loss during the operation (From research evidence) 
  • Less wound infection and breakdown
  • Minimal scarring

Keyhole hysterectomy has been thoroughly researched and has been found to be a safe and effective procedure with benefits to patients when compared with tummy cut hysterectomy (laparotomy). Expert laparoscopic surgeons are able to ensure patients have all the benefits.

  • Patients are able to drink and have light food a few hours after surgery
  • Patients do not usually require strong painkillers, but paracetamol might be needed to reduce mild pain
  • The bladder catheter comes out a few hours after operation
  • Patients are able to walk soon after surgery
  • Patients usually discharged within 24hours
  • Patients usually resume their normal activity (working, driving, flying) within two weeks after surgery
