In most cases,
hysterectomy is an elective surgery used to treat
female reproductive system (gynecologic) conditions that haven't improved with
medical treatment. For women who have no plans for pregnancy and have
considered and tried other treatment options without success, a hysterectomy
may be a reasonable treatment choice.
