Traditionally, the treatment of uterine fibroids (also known as myomas or leiomyomas) has been by open large abdominal incision surgical removal or Myomectomy. This is usually associated with bleeding, a large scar, pain, and a long recovery period. A robot assisted laparoscopic Myomectomy, combines the best of open and laparoscopic surgery. With the assistance of the robotic system, uterine fibroids can be removed through small incisions with unmatched precision and control.

The potential benefits of robot assisted laparoscopic Myometomy as compared to traditional open large incision abdominal surgery are:

  • Opportunity for future pregnancy
  • Significantly less pain
  • Less blood loss
  • Fewer complications
  • Less scarring
  • A shorter hospital stay
  • A faster return to normal daily activities
