A total hysterectomy surgery involves the complete removal of a woman’s uterus and cervix. This procedure may be recommended for a patient who has been diagnosed with a form of gynecological cancer, such as uterine, ovarian or cervical cancer. Additionally, a hysterectomy is sometimes elected as a preventative measure by a patient who has been identified as having a high risk of developing a gynecological cancer. Regardless of the reason for the procedure, finding an experienced and qualified surgeon to perform a total hysterectomy is imperative, which is why cancer patients from Kissimmee, FL, and across the nation are welcome to visit Moffitt Cancer Center and receive world-renowned cancer treatment.
At Moffitt, our fellowship-trained surgeons each specialize in treating a particular type of cancer, such as gynecological cancer, and perform a high volume of procedures to treat those conditions, including partial and total hysterectomy surgeries. Because they have such specialized knowledge and extensive surgical experience, our surgeons have the expertise needed to provide the best possible quality of life for our patients.
The specialists at Moffitt thoroughly review each gynecological cancer case prior to recommending a total hysterectomy or other type of surgery to ensure that the patient receives the most appropriate treatment approach. This review is performed by a multispecialty team of experts who create an individualized treatment plan for a patient based on her specific condition. This team consists of:
- Gynecological oncologists
- Reproductive endocrinologists
- Social workers
- And more
Sometimes, a total hysterectomy is accompanied by a bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy – the removal of both ovaries and fallopian tubes – as well as chemotherapy or radiation therapy, depending on the extent of the cancer. All of these treatments are available at Moffitt in one convenient location, along with any supportive care services a patient may need.
