Minimally Invasive Surgery For Uterine Fibroids
If your doctor recommends surgery to treat uterine fibroids, you may be a candidate for an uterine-preserving, minimally invasive procedure offered at Fletcher Allen – robotic-assisted myomectomy.
Using the assistance of the most advanced combination of surgical and robotics technology available robotic-assisted myomectomy enables our specially trained surgeons to perform this delicate operation with unmatched precision and control – using only a few small incisions.
Benefits of Robotic-Assisted Myomectomy
For many patients, robotic-assisted Myomectomy can provide the most effective, least invasive treatment for uterine fibroids. It is also a uterine-preserving alternative to open abdominal hysterectomy.
Among the potential benefits of robotic-assisted myomectomy as compared to traditional open abdominal surgery are:
- Opportunity for future pregnancy
- Significantly less pain
- Less blood loss
- Fewer complications
- Less scarring
- A shorter hospital stay
- A faster return to normal daily activities
Robotic-Assisted Uterine Reconstruction
The unique level of control and precision provided with robotic-assisted surgery can also help your surgeon provide the most precise and thorough reconstruction possible, helping to prevent possible uterine rupture (tearing) during future pregnancies.
