Hysterectomy Surgery at Phoebe

Hysterectomy Surgery Outcomes

About the procedure: A hysterectomy is a surgery to remove a woman’s uterus.

Understanding the data: There were zero infections out of 39 hysterectomy surgeries as of 2018 and Phoebe Sumter’s outcomes were below the expected rate for this procedure.

How we continue to be better: Phoebe Sumter has established a team dedicated to identifying ways to reduce and prevent the chance of infection. All surgical site infections are reviewed by members of the care team to identify preventive actions.
