Laparoscopic myomectomy


During a laparoscopic myomectomy, your surgeon accesses and removes fibroids through a few small abdominal incisions.

The fibroid is cut into smaller pieces and removed through these small incisions in the abdominal wall.

The advantage of laparoscopic myomectomy over abdominal myomectomy include having less post-operative pain, less blood loss and a faster return to normal activities than with an open laparotomy. Uterine size and fibroid number and location are factors in determining when laparoscopic surgery is appropriate.
