Depending on the patient’s condition, other related treatments to hysterectomy may be recommended along with the surgery or in place of the surgery. For instance, for patients with endometrial hyperplasia, progesterone hormone therapy may be prescribed before surgery to treat the condition. A fibroid treatment, such as surgical removal or medication, may be recommended before the uterus is removed.
After surgery (especially when both ovaries are removed), related treatments like estrogen hormone therapy may be recommended to offset the side effect of lowered sex drive.
Doctors at Florida Hospital consider the patient’s individual condition, history, health and goals before recommending a treatment. Then, we work with patients to create a plan to meet their needs. Related treatments may be included in this plan.
