Understanding Laparoscopic Myomectomy

Laparoscopic Myomectomy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure used to remove uterine fibroids. The procedure utilizes a laparoscope, a thin, lighted instrument inserted through a small abdominal incision. Additional small incisions are made to introduce surgical instruments for visualization and manipulation. This approach minimizes scarring and allows for a faster recovery compared to traditional open surgery.

Laparoscopic Myomectomy Procedure

During the procedure, performed under general anesthesia, here’s a general overview of what to expect:

  • Small abdominal incisions: A few small incisions are made in the abdomen to allow access for the laparoscope and surgical instruments.
  • Visualization and removal: Carbon dioxide gas is inflated into the abdomen to create space for clear visualization. The laparoscope is inserted, and the fibroids are identified. Surgical instruments are then used to remove the fibroids while minimizing blood loss.
  • Closure and recovery: Once the fibroids are removed, the incisions are closed with sutures or staples. You will be monitored in the recovery room until awake and stable, then typically discharged on the same day or after a short hospital stay.

Symptoms Indicating the Need for the Procedure

Laparoscopic myomectomy is recommended for women experiencing significant symptoms due to uterine fibroids, such as:

  • Heavy or prolonged menstrual bleeding
  • Pelvic pain or pressure
  • Frequent urination or difficulty emptying the bladder
  • Constipation
  • Back or leg pain
  • Pain during intercourse
  • Infertility or recurrent pregnancy loss

Diagnosing Uterine Fibroids    

Our experienced gynecologists at Emirates Hospitals Group will conduct a comprehensive evaluation to diagnose fibroids and determine if Laparoscopic Myomectomy is the right approach. Here’s what you can expect:

  • Detailed Medical History: Your doctor will inquire about your symptoms, menstrual history, family history of fibroids, and your desire for future pregnancy.
  • Pelvic Examination: A physical examination of the pelvic organs to assess the size and location of the uterus.
  • Imaging Tests: An ultrasound scan is often used to visualize the uterus and identify fibroids. In some cases, an MRI scan may be recommended for a more detailed picture.

Benefits of Laparoscopic Myomectomy

  • Minimally invasive:Smaller incisions result in less scarring and faster healing.
  • Reduced pain:Compared to open surgery, laparoscopy offers a less painful experience.
  • Shorter hospital stay:Most patients can go home on the same day or after a short stay.
  • Faster recovery:Return to normal activities is typically quicker with laparoscopy.

Frequently Asked Questions

Laparoscopic myomectomy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure to remove uterine fibroids using small incisions and a laparoscope (a thin, lighted tube with a camera). Unlike traditional open myomectomy, which requires a larger abdominal incision, laparoscopic myomectomy results in less pain, shorter recovery time, and minimal scarring.

Ideal candidates are women experiencing significant symptoms from uterine fibroids, such as heavy menstrual bleeding, pelvic pain, or infertility, and who wish to preserve their uterus. It is also suitable for those looking for a minimally invasive option with a quicker recovery period.

As with any surgical procedure, laparoscopic myomectomy carries potential risks, including bleeding, infection, damage to surrounding organs, and reactions to anesthesia. Rarely, fibroids may recur.

Recovery time varies among patients but generally takes about 2 to 4 weeks. Most patients can resume normal activities within a few days, with restrictions on strenuous activities for a few weeks. Detailed postoperative care instructions and follow-up appointments are provided to ensure a smooth recovery.
