Empowering Women’s Health: Myomectomy at ILS Hospitals

Dear Women, as we continue to embark on a journey to illuminate the path to women’s well-being, let’s delve into the realm of gynaecological health and explore the transformative procedure of Myomectomy – a dedicated service provided with precision and compassion at ILS Hospitals.

Understanding Myomectomy:

Myomectomy is a surgical procedure designed to remove uterine fibroids, noncancerous growths that often appear during childbearing years. This procedure aims to alleviate symptoms associated with fibroids while preserving the uterus, making it a crucial option for women seeking fertility preservation or desiring to retain their uterine structure.

Indications for Myomectomy:

  • Uterine Fibroids: Myomectomy is primarily performed to address the presence of uterine fibroids. These benign growths can lead to symptoms such as heavy menstrual bleeding, pelvic pain, and pressure on the bladder or rectum.
  • Fertility Concerns: For women facing fertility challenges due to fibroids, myomectomy offers a viable solution by removing the growths while preserving the uterus.
  • Pelvic Pain or Pressure: Fibroids can cause discomfort or pressure in the pelvic region, and myomectomy provides relief by eliminating these growths.
  • Menstrual Irregularities: When fibroids contribute to irregular or heavy menstrual bleeding, myomectomy becomes a recommended option for restoring normal menstrual patterns.

The Myomectomy Procedure:

  • Preoperative Evaluation: Before the procedure, a thorough evaluation of the patient’s medical history, symptoms, and imaging studies (such as ultrasound or MRI) is conducted to determine the size, number, and location of fibroids.
  • Anaesthesia: Myomectomy is typically performed under general anaesthesia, ensuring that the patient is comfortable and pain-free throughout the procedure.
  • Surgical Approach: There are various approaches to performing myomectomy, including:
  • Abdominal Myomectomy: Involves making an incision in the lower abdomen to access and remove fibroids.
  • Laparoscopic Myomectomy: A minimally invasive approach using small incisions and a camera for visual guidance.
  • Hysteroscopic Myomectomy: Performed through the vagina and cervix without any abdominal incisions.
  • Fibroid Removal: Once access is gained, the surgeon carefully removes the fibroids while preserving the integrity of the uterus.
  • Uterine Closure: After fibroid removal, the uterus is meticulously closed using sutures to ensure proper healing.
  • Recovery: The recovery period varies based on the type of myomectomy performed. Patients are typically monitored in the hospital for a day or more, and full recovery may take several weeks.

Benefits of Myomectomy:

  • Preservation of Uterus: Myomectomy allows women to retain their uterus, making it an ideal choice for those with fertility concerns or a desire to maintain reproductive capabilities.
  • Symptom Relief: By removing fibroids, myomectomy alleviates symptoms such as heavy menstrual bleeding, pelvic pain, and pressure, enhancing overall quality of life.
  • Fertility Enhancement: For women facing fertility challenges due to fibroids, myomectomy can improve the chances of successful conception and a healthy pregnancy.
  • Minimally Invasive Options: Laparoscopic and hysteroscopic myomectomy offer minimally invasive alternatives, resulting in smaller incisions, reduced pain, and faster recovery.
