Myomectomy For Problematic Fibroids

Myomectomy involves uterine resection, which is the removal of a fibroid and a small portion of the uterus where the fibroid is attached. Successful myomectomy requires a highly skilled GYN surgeon.

The primary goal of myomectomy is to minimize the damage to the uterine tissue and the surrounding organs that can happen with other techniques. Myomectomy can be performed via open incision, or via laparoscope or hysteroscope. Each process has its advantages and limitations, but both laparoscopic myomectomy and hysteroscopic myomectomy are less invasive than open surgery and require far less recovery time.

Not all fibroid cases make good candidates for this method. Many women do have good success with myomectomy, but in women with larger or multiple fibroids, we have seen the fibroids return over time, depending on the size and position of the original fibroids, as well as the expertise of the surgeon.

Talk to your surgeon before you make a decision on the best treatment for fibroids.  Don’t be afraid to ask questions, and do your own research, starting with our articles here at concerning the causes and the natural treatments for fibroids.

Many women have great success with this method of removal and are thrilled to avoid more invasive procedures, such as a complete hysterectomy.
