For patients who require surgery to treat uterine fibroids but want to avoid a hysterectomy, a myomectomy (the surgical removal of fibroid tumors) is recommended.
For patients who require surgery to treat uterine fibroids but want to avoid a hysterectomy, a myomectomy (the surgical removal of fibroid tumors) is recommended. A myomectomy is usually performed through a large abdominal incision, but a robot-assisted myomectomy provides the same uterine-preserving surgery in a minimally invasive procedure.
Frequently Asked Questions
What are the benefits of using robot-assisted surgery to treat uterine fibroids?
Even patients who are not candidates for laparoscopic myomectomy, due to large fibroids, multiple fibroids, or fibroids in difficult-to-reach areas may be good candidates for robot-assisted myomectomy due to the greater precision and control offered by the robotic surgical system.
This minimally-invasive procedure has several important benefits over open abdominal surgery: less pain, less blood loss, a shorter hospital stay, a quicker recovery, and minimal scarring.
