Myomectomy

Myomectomy is the preferred robotic, fibroid removal treatment for women who want to become pregnant. Myomectomy surgically removes fibroids, leaving the healthy tissue and the uterus in place. Myomectomy surgery may not guarantee pregnancy, but may improve your chances of becoming pregnant.

Depending on the underlying cause of a woman’s fibroids, some women will experience a return of fibroids after surgery. Women with large or numerous fibroids are more likely to have re-occurrence. Talk to your doctor about whether your type of fibroid is likely to grow back.

Myomectomy risks

As with any procedure, there are risks with myomectomy, including:

  • Bladder or bowel injury
  • Bowel obstruction
  • Hysterectomy (required if heavy bleeding cannot be stopped)
  • Infection of the uterus, fallopian tubes, or ovaries
  • Infertility
  • Scar tissue
  • Uterine scars may break open (rupture) in late pregnancy or during delivery
