There are different ways for doing the hysterotomy in a patient.

  • Vaginal hysterectomy involves removing the uterus through the vagina.
  • Laparoscopic hysterectomy is done with the help of a laparoscope and small incision or cut as compared to open hysterotomy and uterus is removed through a small cut in vagina. Both Vaginal hysterectomy and laparoscopic hysterectomy require 1 to 2 days of hospital stay and 2 to 3 weeks in complete recovery.

Modified radical mastectomy involves removal of breast tissues , nipple , areola , skin and all the lymph nodes under the arm ( axillary lymph nodes dissection ) .

Skin or Nipple sparing mastectomy :

The skin or nipple sparing breast cancer surgery is a variation of the total mastectomy and is normally performed to allow the surgeon to perform breast reconstruction. The surgery removes the same amount of breast tissue. The difference is that the surgeon leaves the breast skin (skin-sparing) and sometimes the nipple (nipple-sparing).

Breast reconstruction can be done at the same time of mastectomy or later.

Double mastectomy :

When both the breasts are removed , it is called double mastectomy or bi lateral mastectomy.

Not all breast cancers require complete removal of breast , if the size of tumor is not too big and it is localized , doctor may perform a surgery with removal of tumor and safe margins along the breast tissues. Breast conservation surgery are also called lumpectomy. It is usually followed by radiation therapy , chemotherapy or hormone therapy.

Sometime chemotherapy is given to patient before the surgery to reduces the size of tumor , it is called neoadjuvant chemotherapy.
