What is a laparoscopic myomectomy?

It means that the myomectomy, or surgical removal of the fibroid(s), is performed by laparoscopic or robotic minimally invasive surgery. 

The uterus is made up of two parts: the cervix and the uterine body. Uterine myomas or fibroids are benign tumors in almost 100% of cases that originate from the walls of the uterus. They can be single or multiple and can have a very variable size depending on each case.

  • Hysteroscopy (through vagina and cervix).
  • Laparoscopy (minimally invasive surgery, with 3-4 small 1 cm incisions made in the abdomen).
  • Open surgery (cesarean section or median longitudinal incision).

‚Äď Non-surgical treatment (embolization). The treatment of uterine fibroids without surgery is possible thanks to a process called embolization; Necrosis of the fibroid is induced, without surgery, by blocking the blood vessels that nourish it. This type of treatment is less used, due to the inability to obtain tissue for biopsy.

Normally, in the absence of postoperative complications, the hospitalization time is usually one day. In some cases, however, patients can be discharged on the same day as surgery.

During admission, all patients will be seen by Dr. Minig to monitor their recovery until discharge from the hospital.
