Hysterectomy

Hysterectomies are the second most common surgery performed on women in the United States with over 600,000 surgeries performed every year. Studies have shown that 1 in 5 hysterectomies are unnecessary, which means over 120,000 women have their uterus unnecessarily removed every year for absolutely no justifiable medical reason. It is estimated that 1 in 3 women in the U.S. will have had a hysterectomy by the age of 60.
