- malignant tumor;
- precancerous stage of uterine disease;
- benign formation of impressive size;
- uterine prolapse;
- endometrial hyperplasia, endometriosis that cannot be eliminated by conservative treatment;
- abnormal uterine bleeding .

And thanks to the help of BK MEDICAL LOGISTIC, thousands of patients from the CIS get the opportunity to undergo diagnostics and treatment in Israel at the most favorable price every year. The cost of the services of Israeli doctors depends on the qualifications of the doctor, the methods used, the duration and complexity of the treatment. But in any case, the prices for medical services in Israel are lower than the cost of similar procedures in Western Europe or the USA.
Hysterectomy methods used in Israeli clinics
One of the features of Israeli medicine is the emphasis on organ-preserving treatment and minimally invasive methods of surgery, therefore, such operations as hysterectomy (removal of the uterus) are carried out by Israeli doctors only if there are appropriate indications. In Israeli clinics, diagnostics are treated with increased responsibility.
When deciding on the need for a hysterectomy, the doctors of Israeli clinics take into account a number of factors:
- the degree of damage to the organ and surrounding tissues;
- individual characteristics of the organism;
- the age of the patient;
- the woman's desire to preserve reproductive functions.
In most clinics in Israel, not a classic hysterectomy, which requires a fairly strong dissection of soft tissues and a long (up to one and a half months) rehabilitation period, but robotic-assisted surgery. The peculiarity of such procedures is minimal damage to blood vessels and nerve endings. In addition, during operations performed by this method, the risk of medical error is practically excluded. Complete recovery after a hysterectomy performed by a minimally invasive method takes several weeks.
Depending on the patient's condition, several types of hysterectomy can be performed in an Israeli clinic:
- subtotal (removed uterus, and the cervix is left);
- total (complete removal of the organ);
- with the removal of the uterus, tubes, appendages and ovaries;
- radical (also remove the lymph nodes , partially fatty tissue and vagina).
Israeli doctors usually decide at a consultation which of the operation options is optimal for a particular patient, which avoids a medical error.
