At Grace Gynecology, your safety and long-term health are our top priorities. We understand that the appearance of fibroids, polyps, and other uterine growths can cause a great deal of discomfort. The good news is that their removal doesn’t have to involve extensive surgery. In an effort to give you the best treatment, we happily offer our myomectomy services. This treatment option is designed to remove uterine growth quickly and easily while minimizing the risk of long-term uterine damage. This is a great choice if you want to improve the health of your uterus without ruining your chances of pregnancy.
What Is a Myomectomy?
Our tissue removal procedure involves the use of a hysteroscopic system designed to remove uterine tissue, including fibroids and polyps. The simplicity of this technique allows us to perform the treatment while minimizing any side effects. The results can effectively ease heavy periods, frequent urination, and other abnormal uterine symptoms without having to undergo major surgery.
What Does a Myomectomy Address?
A myomectomy can be an excellent option for removing growths in the uterus. Both fibroids and polyps can cause several unpleasant symptoms such as pelvic pain, urinary incontinence, and abnormal bleeding. After the removal of these growths, you can live a more comfortable and healthy life.
While this treatment is a good choice for growth removal, it is not appropriate for patients who are or may be pregnant, are exhibiting pelvic infection, cervical malignancies, or have previously diagnosed uterine cancer.
How Does a Myomectomy Work?
A myomectomy at our center is performed in three simple steps. First, the cervix is opened and a slender camera is passed through into your uterus. This is followed by the insertion of a slender wand through your vagina into your uterus. The side of the wand gently cuts the fibroid or polyp and suctions them through a small open window into the wand and out of your body. Once the fibroid or polyp has been extracted, the wand is removed from the uterus.
What Is the Myomectomy Recovery Time?
The entire myomectomy procedure can be done in as little as 15-20 minutes. After your visit to our Rockwall center, you may experience some cramping, mild pain, nausea, or vomiting. That being said, you should be able to resume normal activities within a few days. Our team at Grace Gynecology may provide you with aftercare instructions.
