Myomectomy (Fibroid Removal)

  • What is a Myomectomy (Fibroid Removal)?

    Myomectomy (also known as fibroidectomy) is a surgical procedure that is done to remove a fibroid (fibrous growth) from your uterus. The procedure aims to remove only the fibroid, leaving your uterus in place. It is commonly done if you have a fibroid that is causing pain, bleeding or problems with childbearing. It is typically done by abdominal surgery or laparoscopic surgery.

  • Myomectomy is needed by women of childbearing age whose fibroid symptoms affect their normal activities, but who wish to retain their fertility or who do not wish to have a hysterectomy (womb removal). If you need surgery for uterine fibroid(s), the reasons for your gynaecologist to choose myomectomy instead of hysterectomy may include:

    • You plan to have children in the future
    • Uterine fibroid might be affecting your fertility
    • You want to keep your uterus
