Fibroid symptoms can be very disruptive, but many women still choose to delay treatment. Some are advised to watch and wait rather than seek surgical treatment, which in actuality is an outdated approach. When fibroids grow, symptoms become more severe. Large fibroids can distort the uterus and it becomes harder to preserve it for fertility. Watching and waiting can lead to major problems when it comes to the ability to conceive and carry a baby to term.
It takes a skilled specialist to thoroughly remove fibroids and repair the uterus so it can hold a growing baby. If fertility is no longer desired or the fibroids have created extensive distortion to the uterus, hysterectomy is recommended as definitive treatment. When these procedures are performed with minimally invasive approach, post-operative recovery is much faster and easier.
FIBROID REMOVAL AT CIGC: THE BENEFITS
LAAM myomectomy is an advanced uterus sparing fibroid removal surgery that uses only 2 small incisions (one 5 mm incision at the belly button, and another 3 cm incision at the bikini line). The surgeon is able to feel the fibroids during the procedure, which makes removal very thorough. Using advanced surgical techniques, fibroids of any number and size can be removed with LAAM. Because of the minimally invasive approach, patients recover faster (10-14 days), with less complications and pain.
