A hysterectomy can be performed in different ways, but the main purpose is to remove the uterus, and at times, the ovaries as well. It is an extremely common procedure that is used to treat such conditions as severe or abnormal vaginal bleeding, pre-cancerous conditions found in the cervix, uterine fibroids, severe endometriosis, uterine prolapsed, pelvic relaxation, and cancer.
