Myomectomy is a procedure that surgically removes fibroids, non-cancerous tumors of the uterus, and repairs the uterus for women who plan to bear children or want to keep their uterus. It is mainly for women who plan to bear children at a later age, when fibroid symptoms tend to occur. This procedure can be done in a few different ways, depending on the type or size of the fibroids. Laparotomy or abdominal myomectomy uses an incision and allows the surgeon to visually inspect the uterus and feel for fibroids. Hysteroscopic myomectomy uses a tool called a resectoscope to enter through the vagina and cervix to shave away the fibroid pieces. Finally, laparoscopic myomectomy can be done with the standard laparoscope or the da Vinci robotic system.
