Laparoscopic Myomectomy is a minimum invasive procedure in which a small incision is made in the abdomen near your belly button to remove fibroids on the uterus. Then a laparoscope which is a narrow tube fitted with a camera is inserted into the abdomen. The surgery is performed by inserting instruments through similar incisions into the body. The fibroid is reduced to small pieces and removed through these incisions. This procedure ensures minimal pain and loss of blood.
The fibroid location and numbers and the size of the uterus are determinant factors in a laparoscopic surgery. The recovery is also speedier and takes about 2-3 weeks
