Fibroid symptoms like pelvic pain and heavy GYN bleeding can be disruptive to a woman’s everyday life. Despite that, women often don’t find the time to address their pain, or choose to listen to their doctor’s recommendation to “watch and wait”. It’s important to note that small fibroids can grow and cause problems if left untreated. Fibroid growth is unpredictable, but they can get very large, very fast.
Take a look at these helpful facts every woman dealing with fibroids should know. The risks of letting fibroids grow are substantial and it’s worth looking into the right treatment method early on.

FIBROID TREATMENT OPTIONS
At The Center for Innovative GYN Care, fibroid removal surgery to preserve fertility is performed with LAAM: a minimally invasive myomectomy that takes the best elements of both laparoscopic and open approaches. LAAM can be performed on any patient regardless of the location, size or number of fibroids, with 2 small incisions and 10-14 days recovery time.
If hysterectomy is necessary or desired as definitive fibroid treatment, CIGC physicians use a minimally invasive approach here as well, with DualPortGYN: two 5 mm incisions and 1 week recovery time.
