Myomectomy for Fibroids Surgery in Chunni-ganj, Kanpur

A myomectomy refers to a surgical procedure that is used to remove fibroids. These fibroids are noncancerous and are located in the uterus. They are removed while preserving the uterus. It is generally performed on women who show symptoms of fibroids and would want to have children in the future. The procedure of myomectomy is considered to be very effective but the fibroids hold the capacity of regrowth. The tendency of the fibroids regrowing is more in younger people. There are many different ways to perform a myomectomy. The best suited are chosen based on the number, size, and location of the fibroids.

Why is Myomectomy performed?

Myomectomy is recommended by the doctor if the fibroids present in your uterus showcase problematic and troublesome symptoms that may interfere with your daily activities and lifestyle.

What are the ways to perform myomectomy?

Myomectomy surgery in Kanpur can be performed in three ways:

- Abdominal myomectomy

This procedure involves a surgeon making a small incision in your lower belly to remove the fibroids. It is also known as open myomectomy.

- Laparoscopic myomectomy

It can be used to remove only certain fibroids. Various small incisions are made to remove the fibroids. This procedure is considered to be less invasive and requires a shorter recovery period.

- Hysteroscopic myomectomy

This is preferred for women with submucosal fibroids while the fibroids located within the uterine wall cannot be removed with this procedure. A special scope is used to remove your fibroids through your vagina and cervix.

How to Prepare for Myomectomy in Kanpur?

Before going in for surgery, you may have to take certain medicines as prescribed by your doctor to shrink the fibroids and make their removal easy. You’ll have to avoid drinking or eating anything a few hours before the surgery. Discuss with the doctor, your medical history in detail, any over-the-counter medication you’d been taken, the vitamins and supplements that you take. Depending on the type of surgery, you may be given either general anesthesia or be kept under monitored anesthesia care. You should be accompanied by someone on the day of the surgery to take care of you and to take you home.

What happens during the Procedure of Myomectomy?

The procedure is different for different types of myomectomies:

- Abdominal myomectomy

An incision through your lower abdomen is made into your uterus. This incision can be made in several ways, whichever is best suited according to the doctor. Through the incision, the doctor removes the fibroids from the uterine wall. The incision is then closed using stitches.

- Laparoscopic myomectomy

Four small incisions about ½ inch each in size are made in the lower abdomen. The belly is filled with carbon dioxide gas to allow the surgeon clear visibility inside the abdomen. A laparoscope is placed in one of the incisions, while the surgery is performed robotically with the surgeon handling controlling the instruments. The fibroids are cut into small pieces and thereafter removed. After the removal, the tools are removed, the gas is let out, and the incisions are closed.

- Hysteroscopic myomectomy

A thin, lighted scope is inserted through the vagina and cervix and into the uterus. A liquid is placed in the uterus to widen it to allow doctors to see the fibroids more clearly. The surgeon uses a wire loop to shave off pieces of the fibroids. The liquid thereafter will wash out the removed pieces of fibroid.
