TONIGHT: Uterine sparing techniques, probiotics and strategies for weight loss
The rate of hysterectomy in Australia for women aged 15 and over is nearly three times more (80,000 versus 28,600) than those who had endometrial ablation over the same three-year period from 2013-2015, research shows.
And hysterectomy rates in Australia are far higher than other developed countries, such as the UK, where endometrial ablations are now performed at a rate three times that of hysterectomy.
Tune in tonight’s Healthed webcast to hear from Professor Jason Abbott, renowned Sydney-based obstetrician-gynaecologist surgeon, about why uterine-sparing procedures are favoured over hysterectomy, despite uptake in Australia remaining low.
