    1. Hello, my name is laura, I have a couple of myomas on my uterus, I am very afraid of going under the knife and I heard that this clinic uses a different approach for a less invasive procedure is this true?

      • Hello laura,

        The removal of myomas in the uterus does require surgical intervention, In the Hinsdale Center for Reproduction, they offer laparoscopic surgery to try and minimize the recovery time.

        I recommend you visit their website and/or get in contact with the clinic so they can give you more information about this procedure. In this article you can further read about your myomas: What are uterine fibroids?

        I hope I could help you,

        All the best.
