The LASH procedure

The LASH procedure uses a thin, lighted telescope-like instrument called a laparoscope, which acts like a video camera, along with small surgical instruments that are all inserted through three to four tiny incisions in the navel and abdomen. Using the instruments, the surgeon carefully separates the uterus from the cervix and removes it through one of the openings. The cervix, the bottom part of the uterus is left in tact. Because this type of surgery does not require the surgeon to make a large abdominal incision, you will not have the same kinds of visible scar typical with most traditional, “open” surgeries.
