Hysterectomy is a procedure that involves the surgical removal of a woman’s uterus. It is a common treatment procedure for conditions such as uterine prolapse, uterine fibroids, cancer of the uterus or cervix, and endometriosis. Depending on the reason, the surgeon may remove only a part of, or the entire uterus. The operation can be performed through traditional open surgery or a minimally invasive robot-assisted laparoscopic hysterectomy. The latter is usually a lot more costly than the former, yet offers minimal downtime and no scarring.
If you wish to have Hysterectomy either by need or choice, you can expect to shell out a large sum of money. If insurance can’t help lighten the burden, you can consider having the procedure done in Southeast Asia. Southeast Asian countries now offer world-class, quality medical treatment procedures performed by highly-trained and board-certified doctors. The procedure can be performed even with short-notice, a feature in patient care that is difficult to enjoy in most Western countries these days. You can expect to enjoy patient care that is at par with that in Western countries but without spending as much - that is, savings of about 70%, all travel costs considered.
