Laparoscopic Fibroid Surgery

Laparoscopic fibroid surgery removes fibroids that can occur in the uterus.

Fibroid surgery (myomectomy) is carried out by a gynaecologist to remove fibroids from the uterus. The surgery can be performed laparoscopically  (small incision surgery).  Myomectomy is a way to remove fibroids without removing the whole uterus, which enables some women to still get pregnant.

What does Laparoscopic Fibroid Surgery treat?

Uterine fibroids are lumps that grow on the uterus, often causing heavy menstrual bleeding, cramps, pain during intercourse, and a need to urinate more than usual. Fibroids are non-cancerous.

Not all fibroids require surgery, but laparoscopic fibroid surgery is often recommended for:

  • Heavy menstrual bleeding or anemia
  • Fibroids that grow after menopause
  • Fibroids that could cause miscarriages or make getting pregnant difficult
  • Fibroids that cause pelvic pain and pressure
  • The risk of cancer

Laparoscopic Fibroid Surgery results

Laparoscopic fibroid surgery eliminates pain and discomfort caused by fibroids in most patients and is a good option for women who might still want to try to get pregnant.

What to expect with Laparoscopic Fibroid Surgery

Fibroid surgery involves the gynaecologist first making one or more small incisions. A tiny camera (laparoscope) to view the area and surgical instruments are then inserted to perform the surgery.

Recovery After Laparoscopic Fibroid Surgery

After surgery, the patient is taken to a recovery room to be monitored in case there are any complications. The procedure does not require an overnight stay, and it is necessary that the patient has someone on-hand to drive them home.
