The classification of laparoscopic hysterectomy is provided and the most important functional outcome parameters are discussed in the context of an evidence-based comparison between these three approaches. The learning curve for laparoscopic hysterectomy is emphasized and the corresponding data are presented. A take home message is conveyed.
