LAVH is a minimally-invasive surgical procedure using laparoscopic techniques and instruments to remove the uterus through the vagina. Sometimes, one or both fallopian tubes and ovaries are also removed. The greatest advantages of a LAVH are a shorter hospital stay, a shorter recovery time and less post-operative pain compared to an abdominal hysterectomy.
Both Dr. Cooper and Dr. Kalter are skilled laparoscopists and trained in LAVH.
