Myomectomy

Myomectomy is a surgical procedure used to remove abnormal, noncancerous growths (uterine fibroids) from the uterus. Myomectomy may be done through small incisions with the use of a lighted viewing instrument (laparoscopy or hysteroscopy). Or it may be done with an open abdominal incision (laparotomy). The method depends on the size and location of uterine fibroids and whether urinary or bowel problems are present.

Myomectomy removes uterine fibroids. The uterus is left in place. The procedure reduces the bleeding and pain caused by uterine fibroids. But uterine fibroids may return after surgery.
