Vaginal Morcellation of Uterus in Single Port Laparoscopic Hysterectomy

October 10, 2011

This video illustrates a technique for removing a large uterus during a Laparo-Endoscopic Single Site (LESS)/ single incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS) technique for total or supracervical laparoscopic hysterectomy. A morcellator is used to remove the uterus in small pieces. This technique allows the entire procedure to be performed through one single incision in the belly-button. Patients can often go home the same day.
