Understanding Myomectomy (Laparoscopic) Treatment

Myomectomy is a surgical procedure performed to remove uterine fibroids, which are non-cancerous growths that develop in the uterus. Fibroids can cause symptoms such as heavy menstrual bleeding, pelvic pain, pressure on the bladder or bowel, and infertility. Myomectomy aims to preserve the uterus and improve symptoms by removing fibroids while leaving the uterus intact. Laparoscopic myomectomy, also known as minimally invasive myomectomy, is a surgical approach that uses small incisions and specialized instruments to remove fibroids with minimal scarring and faster recovery compared to traditional open surgery.

Preparation and Procedure

At Neo TrueNorth, we prioritize patient comfort and satisfaction throughout the laparoscopic myomectomy treatment process. The procedure typically involves the following steps:

  1. Initial Consultation: During the initial consultation, the gynecologist will evaluate the patient’s symptoms, perform a pelvic examination, and may order imaging studies such as ultrasound or MRI to assess the size, number, and location of fibroids. The gynecologist will also review the risks and benefits of myomectomy and discuss the surgical approach with the patient.

  2. Preoperative Evaluation: Before surgery, the patient may undergo blood tests and other preoperative evaluations to assess overall health and identify any underlying medical conditions that may affect the surgical outcome. The patient may also be advised to discontinue certain medications that could increase the risk of bleeding during surgery.

  3. Surgical Procedure: Laparoscopic myomectomy is typically performed under general anesthesia to ensure patient comfort and safety. During the procedure, the gynecologist makes several small incisions in the abdomen and inserts a laparoscope (a thin, flexible tube with a camera) and specialized surgical instruments. The uterus is visualized on a monitor, and the fibroids are carefully dissected and removed through the small incisions. The uterine wall is then repaired using sutures to ensure hemostasis and preserve fertility.

  4. Postoperative Care: After laparoscopic myomectomy, patients are closely monitored in the recovery room for any signs of complications such as bleeding, infection, or anesthesia-related side effects. Pain medications, antibiotics, and intravenous fluids may be administered as needed to manage pain and prevent infection. Patients are usually discharged from the hospital within 1-2 days after surgery and provided with instructions for postoperative care and follow-up appointments.

  5. Recovery and Results: The recovery time after laparoscopic myomectomy varies depending on the size and number of fibroids removed, the patient’s overall health, and the presence of any complications. Most patients can resume normal activities within 1-2 weeks after surgery, although strenuous activities and heavy lifting should be avoided for a few weeks. With proper treatment and postoperative care, laparoscopic myomectomy has a high success rate in relieving symptoms of uterine fibroids and preserving fertility.
