Dr Melissa Delgado, Obstetrician & Gynaecologist


Hysterectomy is a significant surgical procedure involving the removal of the uterus, often extending to other reproductive organs. This intervention is considered for various health concerns, ranging from benign conditions like uterine fibroids to more serious issues such as cancer. Dr. Delgado, a seasoned medical professional, plays a crucial role in providing information, advice, guidance and support to individuals navigating the complex decision-making process associated with hysterectomy.

Hysterectomy, derived from the Greek words “hystera” (uterus) and “ektome” (cut out), is a common gynaecological procedure addressing a spectrum of health issues impacting the female reproductive system.

There are several reasons why a woman may undergo a hysterectomy, including uterine fibroids, endometriosis, uterine prolapse or cancer. The surgical procedure can be conducted using various approaches, such as abdominal hysterectomy, vaginal hysterectomy, laparoscopic hysterectomy and robotic-assisted hysterectomy. The choice depends on the patient’s health, the underlying condition and other individual factors.

Dr. Delgado, as a trusted medical professional, plays a pivotal role in guiding individuals through the decision-making process associated with hysterectomy. Comprehensive information about the patient’s specific condition, available treatment options and the potential risks and benefits of hysterectomy empowers individuals to make informed decisions about their health.

Understanding that each patient is unique, Dr. Delgado offers personalised advice based on factors such as overall health, medical history and the nature of the underlying condition. This tailored approach ensures that the chosen treatment aligns with the individual’s specific needs.

Facing the prospect of a hysterectomy can be emotionally challenging. Dr. Delgado offers empathetic support, addressing concerns and providing reassurance throughout the decision-making process and the subsequent stages of treatment and recovery, including monitoring recovery, managing any complications and providing guidance on postoperative care to optimise healing.
