Myomectomy is the method of removal of myomas, fibroids, can be one of several including robot-assisted laparoscopy, laparoscopy, and laparotomy (abdominal incision). The choice will be dependent upon a number of factors such as size of the fibroid, location and number.

The newest method available to you for myomectomy is the da Vinci system. Using robotics-assisted technology, your physician is able to be more precise than ever before. The result is less risk of healthy tissue loss, less bleeding intraoperatively, less pain, and a shorter recovery time in comparison with laparoscopy alone or laparotomy.

Although a laparotomy may require a longer recovery, in some cases it may actually maximize your chances for a future pregnancy. There are multiple factors your physician will consider before recommending a treatment plan.
