Myomectomy Surgery from miVIP

Improve Your Quality of Life with Treatment from miVIP

Non-cancerous growths in the uterus may be treated in a number of ways. Surgical removal of uterine fibroids is referred to as myomectomy surgery, and is counted among the best ways to rid women of issues that come with the appearance of fibroids, such as infertility and pain.

Traditional treatment of uterine fibroids may have included a hysterectomy, which can be physically and emotionally traumatic for women. We offer several new and innovative ways to surgically treat uterine fibroids, including hysteroscopy, laparotomy and laparoscopy.

The Details of Myomectomy Surgery

Myomectomy surgery allows surgeons to treat painful uterine fibroids while increasing the chances of fertility in patients. Before a myomectomy, patients may receive hormonal treatments to attempt to reduce the fibroid size. Patients with bleeding from fibroids may receive Gonadotropin-releasing hormone analogue therapy to help reduce the chances of blood loss during fibroid surgery.

The three most popular myomectomy surgery options are:

  • Hysteroscopy – Surgeon visilbity during fibroid removal is improved with the help of a lighted instrument inserted through the vagina into the uterus. This procedure is typically chosen when fibroids have not yet grown deep into the uterine wall.
  • Laparoscopy – Small incisions are made in the abdomen area and a small instrument is used to remove fibroids smaller than two inches in diameter that grow outside the uterus. Laparoscopic fibroid removal is used when only one or two fibroids must be removed and is typically done on an outpatient basis.
  • Laparotomy – Larger fibroids are treated through a large incision in the stomach, and a laparotomy is chosen if bowel problems or urinary tract issues must be repaired at the same time as fibroid removal. This surgical procedure may require several days of a hospital stay.

Each case is unique, and the type of procedure used depends largely on the location and number of fibroids of the individual patient. Consult with your surgeon to decide which method is right for your body.

Expected Recovery After Surgery
