In this fatwa:
There is no objection to remove the uterus if it is medically warranted.
Responding to your question, Dr. Hatem Al-Hajj, Dean of Shari`ah Academy of America, states:
There is no harm in removing the uterus in your mother’s case, if it is medically warranted. Though, I would get a second opinion to confirm that this will not be a case of permanent sterilization, which is categorically forbidden, since the motive here and the justification is completely different.
Almighty Allah knows best.
