Considerations in Selecting Hysterectomy Route

Keith Reisler, MD, stands out as one of the first physicians in the Plano, Texas, area to perform certain minimally invasive pelvic procedures. He was the first in Plano to perform Hysteroscopic Endometrial Ablations, a day procedure which stops or slows a woman's periods. Particularly experienced in the use of laparoscopic hysterectomy techniques, Dr. Keith Reisler has performed many such procedures as part of his obstetrics and gynecology (OBGYN) practice.

As more data becomes available on the safety and efficacy of different types of hysterectomy procedures, authorities such as the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) are beginning to be able to make recommendations. While the ultimate decision always rests on what suits the patients' needs, data shows that although abdominal hysterectomy is the most popular option, a vaginal procedure may provide the safer results at a lower cost. Vaginal procedures may not be appropriate for all patients, however, as potential contraindications such as a narrow vagina, previous pelvic surgeries, a very enlarged uterus may give some surgeons pause.

For these patients, the ACOG suggests that laparoscopic hysterectomy may stand out as an alternative to the more invasive abdominal procedure. Data suggests that a laparoscopic procedure, which involves only small incisions, results in less pain and a quicker return to normal activities as compared to abdominal procedures. Vaginal hyserectomy and laparoscopic hysterectomy are time proven with good outcomes. ACOG does not recommend Robotic Surgery for benign hysterectomy at this time since studies have not shown a benefit over the previous mentioned procedures, and the expensive is significantly higher.
