A total hysterectomy means that the uterus and cervix are removed. In some cases, the fallopian tubes and ovaries are removed along with the uterus and cervix. This is called Total Hysterectomy with Bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy. In a Supracervical Hysterectomy, only the uterus (not the cervix) is removed. The type of hysterectomy performed depends on the reason for the procedure. There are multiple ways that hysterectomy can be performed.
