Intra-uterine fibroid surgery removes fibroids, or firm tumours, that can occur in the uterus.

What is intra-uterine fibroid surgery?

Intra-uterine fibroid surgery (myomectomy) is carried out by a gynaecologist to remove fibroids from the uterus. The surgery can be laparoscopy (small incision surgery) or open surgery through a larger incision in the abdomen. Myomectomy is a way to remove fibroids without removing the whole uterus, which enables some women to still get pregnant.

What does intra-uterine fibroid surgery treat?

Uterine fibroids are lumps that grow on the uterus, often causing heavy menstrual bleeding, cramps, pain during intercourse, and a need to urinate more than usual. Fibroids are usually non-cancerous.

Not all fibroids require surgery, but intra-uterine fibroid surgery is often recommended for:

  • Heavy menstrual bleeding or anemia
  • Fibroids that grow after menopause
  • Fibroids that could cause miscarriages or make getting pregnant difficult
  • Fibroids that cause pelvic pain and pressure
  • The risk of cancer

Intra-uterine fibroid surgery results

Intra-uterine fibroid surgery eliminates pain and discomfort caused by fibroids in most patients, and is a good option for women who might still want to try to get pregnant.

Preparing for intra-uterine fibroid surgery

Patients may need to follow specific advice around what to eat and drink before intra-uterine fibroid surgery.

What to expect with intra-uterine fibroid surgery

Intra-uterine fibroid surgery involves the gynaecologist first making one or more small incisions. A tiny camera (laparoscope) to view the area and surgical instruments are then inserted to perform the surgery.

Recovery after intra-uterine fibroid surgery

After surgery, the patient is taken to a recovery room to be monitored in case there are any complications. The procedure does not require an overnight stay, and it is recommended that the patient has someone on-hand to drive them home.
