why take out cervix

had a hystorectomy, left 1 ovary for hormones but took out cervix too  why take out the cervix?
Avatar dr f tn
HI,
A total hysterectomy in modern times usually means that the uterus is removed along with the cervix. The cervix if left behind can be the site of further complications after the surgery like infection and cervical cancer.
Hope this helps.
