Laparoscopic Assisted Vaginal Hysterectomy (LAVH) is minimally invasive surgery for the removal of a large fibroid uterus causing pelvic pain and bleeding. LAVH is easy and fast with no morcellator necessary for removal of the uterus. The uterus is delivered vaginally. LAVH has a fewer and smaller scars than Robotic Hysterectomy. The recovery is quick with less pain than traditional hysterectomies. Dr. Taylor has been performing LAVH in Oak Park, Illinois since 1991. Experience matters.
