Myomectomy (for Uterine Fibroids)
Uterine fibroids are a type of non-cancerous growth in the uterus. Uterine fibroids develop from the muscle tissue of the uterus and can cause changes in menstruation (longer and/or heavier periods), lower back pain, pressure in the pelvic area, as well as infertility. Most patients with symptomatic fibroids can be treated with a myomectomy.
Myomectomy is a surgical procedure to remove uterine fibroids. Myomectomy utilizes either laparotomy (open surgery), robotic laparoscopy, or hysteroscopy to visualize the uterus and remove the fibroid(s), without disrupting the healthy tissue of the uterine lining. Advances in technology have allowed for minimally invasive procedures, such as hysteroscopic and laparoscopic myomectomy to become the standard of care for removing fibroids while preserving a woman’s uterus and reproductive potential.
Fortunately, recent microsurgical techniques allow for the procedure to be performed on an outpatient basis in many cases. Your doctor will determine whether a myomectomy is the best course of treatment for your situation. Depending on the number and location of fibroids, your doctor may recommend other non-surgical treatments, such as medications to reduce fibroid size, heavy bleeding, and pain.
