Myomectomy is a surgical treatment that removes uterine fibroids, which are benign (non-cancerous) growths in the uterus.

The surgery can help relieve uterine fibroid symptoms such as excessively heavy menstrual bleeding, pelvic pain, and bladder or bowel pressure.

Myomectomy preserves the uterus while treating the fibroids, unlike hysterectomy, unlike hysterectomy, which is also performed to treat uterine fibroids.

Myomectomy is a procedure that allows women who wish to become pregnant or who prefer to keep their uterus in place to do so.

The size, quantity, and kind of fibroids will determine the myomectomy treatment utilized. Among the possibilities are as follows:

Hysteroscopic myomectomy

Minimally invasive technique that removes fibroids using tiny, illuminated surgical instruments put via the vaginal canal and into your uterus. This method can be used to remove fibroids from the uterus that have not penetrated the uterine wall deeply. It is usually done as an outpatient operation (no hospital stay).

Laparoscopic or robotic myomectomy

A minimally invasive treatment in which fibroids are removed using small, specialized surgical instruments inserted through tiny incisions in the belly.

This method eliminates the need for traditional open surgery, minimizing discomfort, scars, problems, and recovery time while also reducing hospital stays.

Fibroids developing on the exterior of the uterus are frequently removed via laparoscopic myomectomy. A surgical robot is occasionally utilized to do the treatment, allowing women with complex disorders who would normally require open surgery to opt for a less invasive option.

Laparotomy (abdominal myomectomy)

The fibroids are removed via a wide incision in the abdomen, as in traditional open surgery. When fibroids are too many, big, or deep in the uterine wall to be removed using minimally invasive treatments, this method is performed. After the fibroids are removed, open surgery may make it easier to heal the uterus.
