A minimally invasive hysterectomy is a procedure of surgery by which the uterus is removed through the vagina. It is also known as a vaginal hysterectomy. Before removing the uterus, the surgeon separates the uterus from the fallopian tubes, ovaries and upper vagina. Vaginal hysterectomy is a more straightforward process than abdominal hysterectomy.
