Laparoscopic radical hysterectomy was done in nine patients in a period of last 1.5 yrs. The mean age was 50.2 years and BMI was 24.29 respectively. Most of the cases (5) of were stage l followed by stage ll in four cases. Five patients had attained menopause while four were having normal menstrual cycle. Average blood loss during surgery was 200 ml with mean surgery time of 3.8 hrs. Most of the patients were discharged in 5 days however one had longest hospital stay of 10 days. Histopathological report of four patients showed adenocarcinoma and five had squamous cell carcinoma. None of the patients had positive lymph node.
