SILS™ Hysterectomy


More than 600,000 hysterectomies are performed in the U.S. each year; it is now the second most common surgery for women of reproductive age. A doctor may recommend this surgery for several reasons including fibroid tumors, endometriosis, or failure of medications to control your heavy periods.

If you are considering a hysterectomy, you may want to talk to your doctor about whether you are a candidate for SILS™, and how other hysterectomy options compare. There are 4 different types of hysterectomies.

Not all gynecologists can perfom SILS™ Hysterectomies. At Elite, we are proud to offer this surgery to patients who qualify.

What is a SILS™ Hysterectomy?

The latest advancement in laparoscopic surgery, the SILS™ hysterectomy, allows for the removal of the uterus through a small incision (slightly smaller than the diameter of a nickel) in the belly button. The SILS™ hysterectomy offers many potential benefits over other approaches, including:


Less pain due to fewer incisions, compared to traditional laparoscopic surgery


Faster recovery time than open surgery


No visible scar
