A myomectomy is a surgical procedure in which uterine fibroids are removed from the uterus relieving such symptoms as abnormal uterine bleeding, pressure, pain, or other symptoms. Through the use of the da Vinci Robotic System, Dr. Hayes can perform a minimally invasive, yet remarkably precise, comprehensive reconstruction of the uterine wall, regardless of the size or location of your fibroids. The da Vinci Myomectomy offers the same precise and thorough reconstruction as open myomectomy, but without the pain and down time.
Some benefits to a da Vinci Myomectomy 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
Some of our remarkable stories include patients who were scheduled to have an open abdominal myomectomy or hysterectomy with another surgeon but came in for a second opinion and were able to have their fibroids removed robotically by Dr. Hayes. She has taken out fibroids the size of a grape to the size of a baby’s head in a minimally invasive way, not possible with any other tool set. Most myomectomy patients can go home the same day as their procedure with no hospital time, and be back to work the next week!
