  • About Laparoscopic Myomectomy
  • Myomectomy refers to the surgical removal of fibroids that form in the uterus. Laparoscopic myomectomy is a minimally invasive form of surgical removal of those fibroids. Earlier, doctors would treat fibroids in the womb through hysterectomies removing the entire uterus. However, a myomectomy is less dangerous and gives the patient a chance for pregnancy in the future.

  • When is Laparoscopic Myomectomy used?

  • Surgeons perform a Myomectomy in three ways. The first is a hysteroscopic myomectomy, where the surgeon operates through the cervix. Next is an open myomectomy with a full incision to the abdomen. Finally, is the laparoscopic myomectomy with four small incisions.

  • Doctors will typically recommend a Laparoscopic Myomectomy in the following cases:

  • Size of fibroids: The largest fibroid should have a size of less than 10 cm for laparoscopic myomectomy. If the size of the fibroids is larger, doctors can attempt to reduce the size through targeted therapy, hormonal injections, or tablets ^ .

  • The number of fibroids: Doctors recommend a minimally invasive myomectomy to patients when there are less than five fibroids. If there are five or more fibroids, then multiple laparoscopic surgeries may be considered in a two-stage or three-stage procedure.

  • Duration of Surgery: In general, doctors would prescribe laparoscopic surgery if the estimated time duration of the operation is less than 3 hours.

  • Laparoscopic Myomectomy Procedure

  • The doctor administers general anesthesia to the patient.

  • The surgeon will make four incisions in the lower abdomen, each approximately half an inch in length.

  • The surgeon fills carbon dioxide inside the abdomen for better visuals.

  • Then, they insert the laparoscope in one of the incisions and other tools in the other incisions.

  • The doctor cuts the fibroids into smaller pieces and then remove them.

  • Next, the doctor removes the instruments and release the carbon dioxide, then close the incisions.
