Laparoscopic fibroidectomy

When deciding on having fibroids resected, we need to remember that not all fibroids cause infertility. The criteria of a specialized gynecologist regarding which fibroids should be removed are based on the optimization of the woman’s fertility and not on the relief of annoying symptoms such as menorrhagia.

The conventional fibroid resection with a large surgical incision in the abdomen has been used for many years in the treatment of wall and uterine wall fibroids. Nowadays, laparoscopic resection is used to treat fibroids. It is performed with four small incisions (5-10mm) through which fine manipulations are executed, which allow the removal of fibroids.

When the removal of fibroids is performed for infertility reasons, laparoscopic removal is superior to conventional because:

Less adhesions are formed after surgery,

There is less blood loss during surgery,

There is less pain after surgery,

Recovery is rapid and the patient has to stay in hospital for one day only,

There is a better aesthetic result.
