Hysterectomy Surgery

What are the risk of a hysterectomy?

WHAT ARE THE RISKS FACTORS OF HYSTERECTOMY SURGERY?

Hysterectomies are a fairly common procedure, as such surgeons are highly skilled in the procedure. Complications may include blood loss, infection, or a negative reaction to anesthesia. These are common with all forms of surgery. During the surgery, there is also a risk that other organs may be affected, because the pelvic region is a very tight operating environment. As such, patients may have to have follow-up surgery to correct any damage done to other organs. Specific risks can be more or less depending on the type of hysterectomy you are having
