Myomectomy is an alternative to hysterectomy that surgically removes fibroids and leaves the uterus behind. Most women that undergo myomectomy get an abdominal incision and require a six-week recovery. Hysteroscopic myomectomy is an underutilized uterus-sparing technique that removes problematic fibroids without an incision. This procedure is performed as an outpatient, takes less than an hour, and requires essentially no recovery. A hysteroscopic myomectomy can treat a uterine fibroid without the need for surgery, or even an incision. In this video, obstetrician and gynecologist Dr. Lauren Streicher explains more about hysteroscopic myomectomy.
