Laparoscopic Myomectomy

 

In laparoscopic myomectomy, (minimally invasive procedure), your surgeon accesses and removes fibroids through three small abdominal incisions.

The fibroid is cut into smaller pieces and removed through these small incisions in the abdominal wall (using an instrument called morcilator) or, rarely, through an incision in your vagina (colpotomy).

The advantage of laparoscopic myomectomy over abdominal myomectomy are: less pain, lose less blood and return to normal activities more quickly than with a laparotomy. Uterine size and fibroid number and location are factors in determining when laparoscopic surgery is appropriate.
