Hysterectomy for Cancer

Service Type
Body

A hysterectomy removes a woman's uterus and cervix. Often, the procedure takes out your fallopian tubes and ovaries, too. We might take out pelvic lymph nodes to see if or where the cancer has spread.

We offer hysterectomies when cancers of the female reproductive system have advanced. Sometimes, surgical removal of an organ can completely cure cancer. Other times, we try surgery in combination with other therapies.
