Mayo Clinic's approach

At Mayo Clinic, specialists draw upon their vast experience treating gynecologic conditions to help provide exactly the treatment and care you need for your specific condition.

  • Expertise. Mayo Clinic experts are leaders in the use of the latest hysterectomy techniques. Whenever possible, your surgeon will choose minimally invasive surgery, performed through an incision in the vagina or through small abdominal incisions (laparoscopic surgery). Depending on your needs, you may be a candidate for robotic hysterectomy.
  • Experience. Mayo Clinic gynecologic surgeons perform hundreds of hysterectomy surgeries every year.
  • Team approach. Multispecialty teams include gynecologic surgeons and other specialists as needed who can recommend the most appropriate treatment for you.
