What is Myomectomy?

There are two types of myomectomy:
- Abdominal Myomectomy
- se realiza una pequeña incisión en el abdomen, a través de la cual se extirpa el mioma. En estos caso, la mujer tardará alrededor de 46 semanas en recuperarse de la intervención.
- Laparoscopic Myomectomy
- small incisions are made externally and displayed by a fiber optic camera. This type of myomectomy requires less hospitalization time and recovery is usually about 1-2 weeks.
The method chosen by the specialist to remove a fibroid will depend on the size, location and quantity.
