If you need a hysterectomy, board-certified gynecologist Dr. Linda Sodoma at Life Care for Women offers high-quality, state-of-the-art care. During a private one-on-one consultation, we will walk you through the process of having a hysterectomy and listen to any concerns you may have. This is a great time to ask as many questions as possible! Whether you need a hysterectomy due to uterine prolapse, uterine fibroids, endometriosis, or something else, we can create a treatment plan that will help you address your issues. During this surgery, we may perform a total hysterectomy, a partial hysterectomy, or a radical hysterectomy (often only used to treat cancer). For more information on hysterectomies or how Dr. Sodoma can help you address your feminine health issues, contact our Gilbert, AZ office to schedule a consultation.

Even though a hysterectomy can be a difficult, life-changing procedure, it is an effective and safe way to treat several feminine health issues. Benefits of a hysterectomy performed at Life Care for Women in Gilbert, AZ include:

  • Robotic and laparoscopic surgery, which is safer than traditional hysterectomy methods
  • Relief from chronic pain and/or heavy or irregular bleeding
  • Eliminating the risk of uterine cancer
  • Cutting down the likelihood of getting ovarian or endometrial cancer
  • Preventing future menstruation
  • Addressing fibroids, fibroid tumors, and uterine prolapse
  • Downtime may be as short as a few days

Prior to your hysterectomy, we will meet with you one-on-one so you know exactly what to expect. You'll have one of three hysterectomies:

  • Total hysterectomy: Removal of the uterus and cervix
  • Partial hysterectomy: Removal of the upper part of the uterus
  • Radical hysterectomy: Removal of the uterus, cervix, fallopian tubes, and ovaries (typically only performed to treat cancer)

Your hysterectomy will vary, depending on the type of hysterectomy you're having, but Dr. Sodoma typically uses the da Vinci® robotic surgery, a laparoscopic treatment, as this is usually the most minimally invasive option. The da Vinci method has a variety of advantages, including:

  • Less pain
  • Less blood loss
  • Less scarring
  • Fewer complications after surgery
  • Faster recovery time

After your hysterectomy, you can expect to be sore. You'll have some pain for at least a few days and some vaginal bleeding for a few weeks. It's normal to feel constipated after your procedure. If you had a radical hysterectomy, you will begin to notice symptoms of menopause.

Best doctor and best staff. They are always available and incredibly knowledgeable. I always recommend them. Incredibly friendly front desk staff as well!

I have to share my happy story with everyone about Dr. Linda Sodoma. I started seeing her October 2022 to discuss my female issues. The moment she walked in the examination room I felt a vibe that I knew right then she was the right doctor for me. She was humble nice and caring, she took the time to listen and answer the questions I asked on every visit, it only got better and better and she always made me comfortable. Fast forward to 12/06/22 to my surgery day. God, know I was scared and most definitely afraid of going under, but once my angel walked in ( Dr. Sodoma ) I knew I was gonna be okay and she reassures me. My mom has always told me growing up there always an angel that watching high and low places, in other words high meaning in heaven where she is now and low meaning on earth meaning Dr. Sodoma. I can’t forget to salute her team in her office because they were fabulous on every visit. Post Op see God will send good people your way when asked and needed and today I needed everything good to come my way to get thur this. Post Op I couldn’t ask for a better nurse. Nurse Tanner at Banner Baybrook in Gilbert he helped out more than he will ever know, he kept me calm when it came to getting my IV started, I had told him my veins were small and that it was always hard for anyone who tried to stick me it would be hard so he went and got the ultra sound machine and bang he got it on the first try, and he answered all my questions so thank you Tanner. Next came the recovery room nurse Charm always made sure I was okay when I would wake up or go back to sleep, everytime my eyes opened she was right there feeding me ice chips until the next time I woke up. Thank you nurse Charm. Last but not least nurse Genny, words can’t express how great she was handing me in my room. I didn’t have to ring for nothing because she was always there like she knew my body also when it was time for me to void along with everything else she was as there, so thank you nurse Genny. God really do answer prayers and today all mine were met. I had to post a review to let everyone know how marvelous Dr. Sodoma and team treated me today like other days. Thanks for everything Dr. Sodoma your patient Dorcas

About Us
How do I decide if a robotic hysterectomy procedure is right for me?

Women in the Gilbert, AZ area in need of a hysterectomy are welcome to have an honest and forthright discussion with Dr. Sodoma. During your consultation, she will review every part of the operation — so you comprehend what's involved. Our Life Care For Women team also wants to reassure women that a robotic and laparoscopic procedure with the da Vinci platform typically means faster recovery times and a quicker return to normal and recreational activities.

Are there any downsides to a robotic procedure?

A robotic-assisted laparoscopic hysterectomy is a safe procedure but will likely take longer and have a higher risk of injury to the urinary tract than a more traditional abdominal hysterectomy. However, robotic surgery is typically associated with a decreased risk of infection, less pain, and shorter inpatient times.

How long does it take to recover?

Usually, most women are able to recover from a robotic hysterectomy in a few weeks. However, your rehabilitation timeline will depend on a variety of elements, including your underlying physical health and your capacity for postoperative care. Dr. Sodoma and the Life Care For Women team will help you recover as safely and effectively as possible.
