Your doctor may recommend laparoscopic myomectomy if your uterine fibroids are causing symptoms such as pelvic pain, irregular bleeding, heavy periods, and frequent urination.
Laparoscopic myomectomy allows your surgeon to remove your fibroids through several small incisions. It may be done robotically. It is a less invasive method, and recovery is faster than with abdominal myomectomy.
The procedure, when performed by an experienced surgeon, can be considered a safe technique, with an extremely low failure rate and a great outlook in terms of pregnancy.
The surgery can take 15 minutes for a small fibroid removal to a few hours for multiple large fibroids.
The discomfort should go away a couple of days after surgery. You can usually resume all normal activities within a week.
It’s best if you wait three to six months after the myomectomy before attempting conception. This will allow your uterus time to heal.
The cost of Laparoscopic myomectomy ranges from USD 1,593 to USD 4,645 in India.
