Partial Hysterectomy: Keeping Your Ovaries Today Can Ensure Better Health Tomorrow

If a gynecologist, like Rawtani Meera MD, has recommended a partial hysterectomy to treat your uterine fibroids, endometriosis, heavy or irregular periods, chronic pelvic pain or another non-cancerous condition, you may be wondering why a complete hysterectomy is not your doctor's preferred course of action. Many women in your position would just as soon have their entire reproductive system removed all at once to avert potential cancer later. This concern is perfectly understandable and may seem logical, but doctors are moving in the direction of sparing women's ovaries whenever possible.
