Private Laparoscopic Hysterectomy in Canada – Is It possible?

What is a laparoscopic hysterectomy?

A laparoscopic hysterectomy is a minimally invasive surgery to remove the uterus. It is done under general anesthesia and is a day surgery. Small incisions in the abdomen are made for surgical tools and a tiny camera. The uterus is then removed in sections through the incisions or vagina. The advantages of a laparoscopic hysterectomy are less blood loss, less potential for infection and faster recovery.

Wait times to see a GYN and get a surgery

A laparoscopic hysterectomy is an elective surgery and is scheduled ahead. Canadian women, unfortunately, face delays in accessing this surgery. The path to get to it can take up to a year and a half and in some provinces even longer. Just to see a GYN you will need to see your family doctor, get a referral, and then wait for weeks and even months. For many women, this is frustrating and interferes with their quality of life.

Is it possible to get a private laparoscopic hysterectomy in Canada?

To this day and to our best knowledge, there are no private laparoscopic hysterectomies that are available in Canada. We are not sure about the reasons behind it, as some other private surgeries are done here in Canada, such as private joint replacement.
