In severe cases of endometriosis, surgery to remove the uterus and cervix (total hysterectomy) as well as both ovaries may be the best treatment. A hysterectomy alone is not effective — the estrogen your ovaries produce can stimulate any remaining endometriosis and cause pain to persist. A hysterectomy is typically considered a last resort, especially for women still in their reproductive years. You can't get pregnant after a hysterectomy. A hysterectomy is a surgical procedure to remove the womb (uterus) where the womb is removed through several small cuts in the abdomen laparoscopically.

Types-

  • medical Total hysterectomy – the womb and cervix (neck of the womb) are removed; this is the most commonly performed operation
  • medical Subtotal hysterectomy – the main body of the womb is removed, leaving the cervix in place
  • medical Total hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy – the womb, cervix, fallopian tubes (salpingectomy) and the ovaries (oophorectomy) are removed
  • medical Radical hysterectomy – the womb and surrounding tissues are removed, including the fallopian tubes, part of the vagina, ovaries, lymph glands and fatty tissue
