Myomectomy | Minimally Invasive Gynecology Procedure in Loudoun County, VA

What is Myomectomy?

Myomectomy is a type of surgery used to remove uterine fibroids. Your doctor might recommend this surgery if your fibroids are causing symptoms such as:

  • Pelvic pain
  • Heavy periods
  • Irregular bleeding
  • Frequent urination

A myomectomy can be done one of three ways:

Abdominal myomectomy lets your surgeon removes your fibroids through an open surgical cut in your lower belly.

Laparoscopic myomectomy allows your surgeon toremove your fibroids through several small incisions. This may be done robotically. It’s less invasive and recovery is faster than with abdominal myomectomy.

Hysteroscopic myomectomyrequires your surgeon to use a special scope to remove your fibroids through your vagina and cervix.

Who is a good candidate?

Myomectomy is an option for women with fibroids who wish to get pregnant in the future, or who want to keep their uterus for another reason.

Unlike a hysterectomy, which takes out your entire uterus, myomectomy removes your fibroids but leaves your uterus in place. This allows you to try for children in the future.

The type of myomectomy your doctor recommends depends on the size and location of your fibroids:

Abdominal myomectomy may be best for you if you have many or very large fibroids growing in your uterine wall.

Laparoscopic myomectomy may be better if you have smaller and fewer fibroids.

Hysteroscopic myomectomy may be better if you have smaller fibroids inside your uterus.


Loudoun County Laparoscopic Procedures

Laparoscopic procedures are performed when a patient’s pelvic floor is weakened due to natural aging, weight fluctuations, or the strain of pregnancy. The pelvic floor is the intricate connection of tissues, ligaments, and muscles that are situated in your pelvis. Its function is to create a system of support for your rectum, uterus, vagina, bladder, and bowel. When the pelvic floor is weakened, you want a skilled doctor to restore your internal organs to their proper positions.
