A hysterectomy is a surgical procedure performed by a gynecologist in order to remove a woman’s uterus. Hysterectomies may be total, or partial where the cervix is left intact. Hysterectomies are normally performed due to cancer, severe endometriosis, to treat postpartum conditions and to complete gender change procedures. The average cost for a hysterectomy in the United States is $10,000. The cost will depend largely on location.
