Myomectomy is a surgical procedure used to remove fibroids from the uterine muscle without removing the uterus. Women who have a myomectomy are able to continue to have menstrual periods and become pregnant after the procedure. The procedure is reserved for women with severe pain, discomfort, heavy bleeding, and/or pregnancy related complications caused by their fibroids.

Why is myomectomy done?

Myomectomy is a treatment for fibroids, which are non-cancerous tumors that develop in the muscle walls of the uterus.

Some fibroids are tiny, and they may not cause symptoms. Symptomatic fibroids may cause discomfort because they put pressure on the intestines and bladder, or they may cause painful periods and/or heavy bleeding.

Removing fibroids should help to alleviate the symptoms of pain, pressure, and heavy blood flow. Myomectomy allows doctors to remove symptomatic fibroids while sparing the uterus so that a woman may continue to have menstrual periods and helps in becoming pregnant.

Different Types of Myomectomy

The doctor will recommend the appropriate procedure depending on the size and location of the fibroids. The most common methods used for myomectomy are:

  • Abdominal myomectomy — This procedure allows the doctor to remove the fibroids through an open surgical incision in the lower abdomen. This type of procedure is best for women who have very large fibroids.
  • Laparoscopic myomectomy — This procedure allows the doctor to remove the fibroids through several small incisions. This method is less invasive, and recovery is faster.
  • Hysteroscopic myomectomy — This procedure requires the doctor to use a special scope to remove the fibroids through the vagina and cervix. This procedure may be best for women who have smaller fibroids inside the uterus.
  • Robotic myomectomy — In this procedure a Robot is used to perform the procedure with more precision and accuracy with less blood loss.

When You Should Have a Myomectomy
