Laparoscopic supracervical hysterectomy (LSH): Overview

A laparoscopic supracervical hysterectomy removes the uterus through a small cut (incision) in the belly. The doctor inserts a laparoscope and surgical tools through other small cuts in the belly. The cervix is left intact. You may go home the day of surgery or stay in the hospital 1 to 2 days after surgery.
