Laparoscopic Myomectomy Procedure
- It is the surgical process of removing the fibroids from the uterine muscle through the special probing apparatus called laparoscope.
- Removal of fibroids ensures the health of the uterus for reproductive purposes.
- Patients benefit from a shorter hospital stay if they opt for a laparoscopic surgery.
- It is ideal for removal of fibroids that are attached to the uterus’ outer lining through a stalk.
- Incisions as small as a keyhole are made on the abdomen rather than a large cut that would leave a permanent scar.
- It is potentially safe and patients can still become pregnant if the uterus has been carefully preserved.
