Myomectomy

This surgical procedure is performed to remove uterine fibroids and leave the healthy areas of the uterus intact. It may be offered as an alterative to a hysterectomy to preserve your ability to get pregnant.

Myomectomy can be performed in one of several ways. The method recommended by your doctor will depend on the location and size of your fibroids.

Studies show that myomectomy can relieve fibroid-related symptoms in 80% to 90% percent of patients. The original fibroids do not regrow after surgery, but new fibroids may develop.
