Are the complication risks equal for all women when performing a hysterectomy procedure?

In any surgery, the risk of developing complications is different for each patient.

Some patients are at greater risk than others. Essentially, the risks depend on the patient’s general health. For example, if there is an underlying condition, the risks related to anesthesia are greater.

This procedure is usually safe, but as with any other surgery, some complications might occur. The most common risks associated with hysterectomy are infections, blood clots, bleeding.
