Fibroids Removal / Myomectomy

Robotic-Assisted laparoscopic excision of fibroids

Robotic-Assisted laparoscopic excision of fibroids is a synonym of myomectomy. We can assess the site, number, and size of fibroids as effectively as during open surgery. Depending on the characteristics of fibroids, treatment may vary. To read more about fibroids, please click here.
Removing fibroids may help a woman to get pregnant after the surgery. Usually, before trying to conceive, you will need to wait for up to 6 months after surgery. Depending on the number of fibroids removed, this period may be shorter. Nevertheless, to safely get pregnant, the uterus will need dome time to heal after uterine fibroid removal.

Symptoms of fibroids

Other symptoms related to fibroids apart from infertility are pain, bleeding, constipation, or even antenatal issues that fibroids might cause. During pregnancy, fibroids might grow in size affecting the blood flow towards the baby, obstructing the birth canal, causing pre-term labor or vaginal bleeding.
To prevent these problems, women with fibroids before attempting in vitro fertilization (IVF) should consider a myomectomy of one or more fibroids they might have.

Robotic-assisted myomectomy

Robotic-assisted myomectomy is a minimally invasive procedure that can remove fibroids without the limitations of conventional laparoscopy. Usually, the larger size of fibroids forced women to undergo an open procedure. Formation of adhesions and risks related to open surgery negatively affected this fertility seeking procedure.

Size of fibroiods matters ?

Nowadays, even large fibroids can be treated through minimally invasive procedures. The impact of robotic surgery has helped thousands of women around the world since surgeons perform keyhole surgery for large fibroids, without jeopardizing safety. Robotic-assisted treatment ensures access to every part of the pelvis and effective repair of every uterine incision done to remove fibroids. Da-Vinci robotic arm offers 7 degrees of freedom as far as instrument movement is concerned. This increased dexterity increases surgeons’ abilities. Tissue reapproximation is done quickly and anatomically in contrast to conventional laparoscopy.

Benefits of Robotic-Assisted Laparoscopy

Faster recovery
Less pain
Less estimated blood loss
Earlier oral intake
Lower wound infection rates
Lower post-op bleeding
Shorter hospital stay (typically overnight stay)
Better cosmetic results
Quicker return to normal activities
