Myomectomy is a common alternative to hysterectomy for treating fibroids. Myomectomy surgically removes fibroid tumors while leaving the uterus in place. The procedure is often recommended and considered the standard of care for women who want to become pregnant or keep their uterus for other reasons.
If your doctor recommends surgery to treat uterine fibroids, you may be a candidate for da Vinci Myomectomy - a minimally invasive, uterine-sparing procedure. Using state-of-the-art technology, da Vinci Myomectomy requires only a few tiny incisions so you can get back to your life more quickly. da Vinci enables surgeons to perform this delicate operation with superior vision, precision, dexterity and control.
da Vinci Myomectomy offers many potential benefits over traditional open surgery, including:
- Greater likelihood your surgeon can remove large, numerous, hard-to-reach fibroids
- Fewer complications during surgery
- Less blood loss
- Small incisions for minimal scarring
- Shorter hospital stay
- Less narcotic pain medicine required
The da Vinci System has been used successfully worldwide in hundreds of thousands of procedures to date.
