This article provides an overview of the components of the informed consent process for surgery including the components specific to hysterectomy.

The importance of a patient-centered approach is emphasized with an explanation of several communication methods and resources for decision aids that will help to ensure that patients have a good understanding of the items listed above and are able to provide informed consent.
