Hysterectomies at Dr. Carlos G. Peña

A hysterectomy is the surgical removal of the uterus. Removal of the uterus renders the patient unable to bear children (as does removal of ovaries and fallopian tubes), and changes her hormonal levels considerably, so the surgery is normally recommended for only a few specific circumstances:

• Certain types of reproductive system cancers ( uterine, cervical, ovarian) or tumors.
• As a prophylactic treatment for those with either a strong family history of reproductive system cancers (specially breast cancer in conjunction with BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation) or as a part of their recovery from such cancers.
• Severe and intractable endometriosis (overgrowth of the uterine lining) and/or adenomyosis (a more severe of endometriosis, where the uterine lining has grown into and sometimes through the uterine wall) after pharmaceutical and other non-surgical options have been exhausted.
• Postpartum to remove either a severe case of placenta praevia (a placenta that has either formed over or inside the birth canal) or placenta accrete (a placenta that has grown into and through the wall of the uterus to attach itself to other organs), as well as a last resort in case of excessive postpartum bleeding.

• For transmen, as part of their gender transition.

• For severe developmental disabilities.
