Why Have a Laparoscopy Hysterectomy?

A laparoscopic hysterectomy removes a woman’s uterus to address conditions such as heavy periods, pelvic pain caused by endometriosis, unsuccessfully treated pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), adenomyosis, prolapse of the uterus, cancer, obstetrical emergency, or fibroids. 

Since 2008, Dr. Jukes has converted most of her laparoscopic procedures to the da Vinci robot platform to further enhance visualization and enhance precision movements of her instruments. She has become a leader in the field of robotic procedures specific to gynecology. Most importantly, she truly believes that her patients benefit greatly from this enhanced technology.

What is Laparoscope?

The laparoscope is a long, thin tube with a bright light and a camera on the end. It will be inserted through an incision that is created within the abdominal wall. The camera on the laparoscope sends images to a video monitor that the doctor watches in order to perform the procedure.

    Laparoscopy Hysterectomy Procedure Details

    A laparoscopy hysterectomy is an outpatient procedure in which the patient is put under general anesthesia. A small incision will be made in the navel, and the laparoscope will be inserted. The doctor will carefully watch the camera’s image on a large monitor while performing the procedure. Two or three other small incisions will be created in the lower abdomen, and different instruments will then be inserted and used for the uterus removal process.

    “I had my hysterectomy with Dr. Jukes. Had a great experience with very little pain. She is the best at what she does! I work in the medical profession with many surgeons, anesthesiologists, and RNs. They all had nothing but rave reviews for her. So glad I took their advice and went to her.”
