At Hutzel Women’s Health in Warren, MI, we provide the best options for removing fibroids and polyps, including the minimally invasive daVinci Robotic Myomectomy and the MyoSure Hysteroscopic Myomectomy.
The severity of uterine fibroids and polyps varies from woman to woman. Some women can develop uterine fibroids and polyps without experiencing any external symptoms. Other women, however, may experience symptoms so uncomfortable that it becomes difficult to proceed with day-to-day activities.
Symptoms such as heavy menstrual bleeding, and menstrual cycles that last more than a week are common symptoms of uterine fibroids and polyps. Pelvic pain and pressure on the pelvis are other common symptoms. Some women may also experience frequent urination or difficulty emptying the bladder, as well as constipation. Additionally, in some cases of uterine fibroids and polyps, leg pain and back pain may occur.
Myomectomy Surgery to Remove Polyps & Fibroids
During a myomectomy, fibroids and polyps are surgically removed from the uterus, leaving the rest of the healthy uterine tissue intact. For women still considering pregnancy, this is the best removal treatment, since the myomectomy does not compromise the endometrium – meaning the uterine lining where the egg is implanted remains in place.
History of Myomectomy Surgery to Remove Polyps & Fibroids
The abdominal myomectomy surgical procedure was first standardized in 1931, allowing for women to preserve their uteruses. The original procedure -called an “open” myomectomy surgery- required a large incision to be made in the abdomen. In 1979, advancements in the field of medical health led to a significantly less invasive version of the same procedure, which was done with laparoscopic techniques and resulted in much smaller incisions.
In 2005, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the daVinci Robotic Surgical System for gynecologic surgery. Shortly thereafter, the success achieved by endoscopic surgery resulted in the robotic myomectomy being widely embraced by surgeons throughout the country.
MyoSure Minimally Invasive Myomectomy Surgery to Remove Polyps & Fibroids
A MyoSure Myomectomy begins with the insertion of a tiny camera into the vagina, past the cervix, allowing for a view inside the uterus. Then, a thin surgical wand is inserted through the vagina into the cervix, which gently cuts the fibroid or polyp into small pieces. The wand then uses suction to remove the destroyed fibroid or polyp tissue from the uterus.
The minimally invasive MysoSure procedure removes polyps and fibroids with significantly less pain than other procedures. MyoSure Myomectomy patients enjoy a much shorter recovery time – typically allowing for a return to one’s normal routine within a week or so.
daVinci robotic Myomectomy Surgery to Remove Polyps & Fibroids
The precision afforded from the daVinci robotic high resolution 3-D imaging for Myomectomy surgery is unparalleled. Every time your surgeon moves their hand, the daVinci system translates the movement in real-time to rotate and bend the instruments with a level of precision that can only be provided by robotic-assisted surgery.
A robotic-assisted myomectomy is just as effective as a traditional, open myomectomy, and is equally as safe as a laparoscopic operation. But when compared to a traditional myomectomy and conventional laparoscopies, the daVinci myomectomy results in fewer complications.
The daVinci system offers minimally-invasive surgery to women experiencing every range of fibroid severity, even those with large, numerous, or difficult-to-access fibroids.
Patients undergoing a daVinci myomectomy experience less blood loss and fewer complications along the way, resulting in shorter hospital stays and the most rapid recovery time.
One of the main causes of postoperative complications following a traditional myomectomy is poor incision closure, which can result in uterine rupture during subsequent pregnancy. The relatively high number of stitches required for a myomectomy makes the daVinci system a popular choice among surgeons and patients, as it’s robotic arms make for an increased ease in suturing, leaving the patient with safer and stronger stitches than a traditional myomectomy could provide.
