Myomectomy (Fibroid Removal)

  • What is Myomectomy (Fibroid Removal)?

    Myomectomy (also known as Fibroidectomy) is a surgical procedure that is done to remove a fibroid from your uterus. The procedure aims to remove only the fibroid, leaving your uterus in place. Myomectomy is commonly performed if you have a fibroid that causes pain, bleeding or problems with childbearing. A Myomectomy 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. If you need surgery for Uterine Fibroid(s), the reasons for your gynaecologist to choose myomectomy instead of Hysterectomy include:

    • You plan to have children
    • Uterine fibroid might be interfering with your fertility
    • You want to keep your uterus
