A myomectomy is a fertility-sparing procedure, designed to surgically remove fibroids. When fibroids become large, they can distort the uterus, making it harder for women to conceive and carry to term. Early treatment is important in order to prevent further issues, and seeking the help of a specialist is essential.
Thorough removal of fibroids is possible for many patients. A myomectomy is not definitive treatment as fibroids can still return. The only definitive treatment is hysterectomy. A minimally invasive myomectomy relieves symptoms such as heavy menstrual bleeding, and prepares the uterus for pregnancy. With CIGC’s LAAM approach, laparoscopic myomectomy is performed using 2 small incisions. Women recover in less than 2 weeks and many are able to conceive naturally after surgery. In order to achieve a healthy pregnancy, women should wait at least 3 months after surgery before pursuing fertility options as it is essential for the uterus to be completely healed.
