Surgical Options for Hysterectomy

“If you are considering getting a hysterectomy,” says Dr. Guy V. Blumhagen, Gynecologist at ARC Seton Northwest, “Schedule an appointment with your gynecologist to discuss your medical and surgical options to determine the best one for you.”

In this recent podcast of the ARC Healthcare Minute, Dr. Blumhagen discusses the choices for a total hysterectomy, saying, “Surgery can be performed through a large incision in your abdomen, called open surgery, or minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery through a few small incisions using the traditional laparoscope or the da Vinci Robotic system.”

If you would like to make an appointment with Dr. Blumhagen, call ARC Seton Northwest at 512-338-8181 or go online.
