Alternative to Hysterectomy

Hysterectomy Alternatives

alternative to hysterectomy
Abnormally and Excessive menstrual bleeding from the uterus makes traveling and engagement in favorite hobbies like jogging, swimming or even gardening difficult. An alternative to hysterectomy exists today an a treatment to this issue. For at least one in five women, prolonged or heavy menstrual bleeding severely impacts the quality of life. This condition is caused by excessive build-up and shedding of the endometrial lining of the uterus, and is most common in women between the ages of 40 to 50 years old.

Excessive menstrual bleeding often results in anemia, and it can curtail a women's ability to actively and freely engage in activities. It accounts for more than 30% of the 600,000 hysterectomies performed in the United States each year.

In most cases, the first line of defense chosen by doctors and patients is hormonally-based medications. But if hormone therapy fails to control the problem or if the woman chooses not to be on hormone replacement therapy, many women have turned to hysterectomy. This invasive, inpatient surgical procedure for removing the entire uterus usually requires a hospital stay of up to six days and a recovery period of six weeks. However, Dr. Torbati offers alternatives to hysterectomy and we would like you to make an appointment, come in and discuss these alternatives with him in private.
