Robotic-Assisted Myomectomy for Uterine Fibroids

Uterine fibroids are non-cancerous tumors that grow underneath the uterine lining, inside the uterine wall, or outside of the uterus. At least one quarter of all women have uterine fibroids.

Many women do not experience symptoms, but for others, fibroids can cause:

  • Abnormal periods
  • Discomfort
  • Excessive menstrual bleeding
  • Frequent urination
  • Infertility
  • Pain
  • Uterine bleeding

Benefits of Robotic-Assisted Myomectomy

While hysterectomy is a proven way to resolve fibroids, it may not be the best surgical treatment for every woman. Women who wish to become pregnant should consider alternatives such as myomectomy, a uterine-preserving procedure performed to remove uterine fibroids.

The conventional approach to myomectomy is open surgery through a large abdominal incision. Myomectomy can also be performed laparoscopically, but this approach may have less favorable results compared to open surgery. Minimally invasive, robotic-assisted myomectomy combines the best of open and laparoscopic surgery. With the assistance of the robotic surgical system, surgeons remove uterine fibroids through small incisions with precision and control.
