Private Hysterectomy – Do Canadian Women Have an Option?

A hysterectomy is a surgical procedure that removes a woman’s uterus. Sometimes ovaries are left in place, and sometimes they are taken out. There are many reasons a woman would consider a hysterectomy. Endometriosis, uterine fibroids, painful and prolonged periods that are not responding to non-invasive therapies are some of those reasons.

Hysterectomy is considered an elective surgery, which means it can be scheduled. In Canada, wait times for elective surgeries are increasing, and hysterectomy is not an exception. Depending on the province you reside, wait times exceed a year.

Private medical facilities in Canada are few. To our best knowledge, none of them are able to do GYN surgery. There are options in the US. Depending on the facility and the type of hysterectomy prices vary.

The recovery from a hysterectomy can take time. Everyone is different and some women recover faster. We advise that if going for a hysterectomy in the US allow at least 3-5 days to recover at the hotel after surgery before flying home. Plan to take time off work, about3-4 weeks, and rest your body so it can heal. The complete recovery can take up to 6 months.

    Thanks for this information and service. What provinces have the shortest wait times? If I reside in Ontario would I be able to get a hysterectomy in another province?
