Treatment of Fibroids

Uterine fibroids (also known as myomas) affect thirty percent of women and are abnormal, non-cancerous growths on the inside and outside of the uterus. Many fibroids do not usually need treatment, but some may cause abnormal uterine bleeding, pressure, pain or other symptoms. Myomectomy is a procedure in which uterine fibroids are surgically removed.

Surgical treatment of uterine fibroids used to involve a radical hysterectomy; the removal of the entire uterus and ovaries. However, with recent advances in surgical treatment options, surgeons may now perform surgical removal of uterine fibroids while still preserving the functionality of the uterus.

Robotic Assisted Laparoscopic Myomectomy

Myomectomy

Robotic Assisted myomectomy, combines the best of open and laparoscopic surgery. With robotic assistance, surgeons may remove uterine fibroids through small incisions with unmatched precision and control. Learn more about our Surgical Expertise

Benefits of minimally invasive gynecological surgery

Our surgeons use a state of the art robotic assisted surgical platform to provide the following proven benefits for our patients:

  • Faster recovery
  • Less pain
  • Smaller incisions, less scarring

  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Decreased risk of infection
  • Faster return to normal activities

Choosing a Robotic-Assisted laparoscopic myomectomy

Our surgeons are committed to providing the best treatment option for every individual patient. While laparoscopic myomectomy performed using robotic assistance is considered safe and effective, these procedures may not be appropriate for every patient. Always ask your doctor about all treatment options, as well as their risks and benefits.
