A Hysterectomy is a surgical removal of the uterus and is a very common operation.
The uterus may be completely or partially removed, and the tubes and ovaries may
also be removed at the time of hysterectomy. A partial (or supracervical) hysterectomy
is removal of just the upper portion of the uterus, leaving the cervix intact. A total
hysterectomy is removal of the entire uterus and the cervix. A radical hysterectomy
is the removal of the uterus, the tissue on both sides of the cervix (parametrium),
and the upper part of the vagina.
