Minimally invasive gynecologic surgery:-
These surgeries are mostly preferred by most of doctors these days, as very small incisions are made to treat the disease or health condition. However, different surgeries come under this category and they are:
- Abdominal Myomectomy
A small incision is made on the skin below the lower abdomen in this procedure. The fibroids are removed from the uterus wall through this incision and then sewed back with the stitches.
- Laparoscopic / robot-assisted Myomectomy
In this surgery, few incisions are made to remove the fibroids. Instead, the abdominal cavity is filled with carbon dioxide gas, and a thin, lightweight telescope is inserted through the incision to see the ovaries, uterus and fallopian tubes. Other long instruments are inserted from the other incisions to remove the fibroids. Once it is done, the gas is released, and then the incisions are sewed back.
- Hysteroscopic Myomectomy
This surgery is used to remove submucous fibroids from the uterine cavity. In this procedure, the fibroids are removed with the instrument called as hysteroscopic resectoscope, which is then passed to the uterine cavity through the vagina and cervical canal. Then an electrosurgical wire loop is used to remove the fibroid surgically.
- Endometrial ablation
This treatment destroys the lining of the uterus. It doesn’t shrink the fibroids but helps to decrease the heavy menstrual bleeding caused by fibroids.
- Uterine artery embolization
This procedure is carried out to treat fibroids without surgery. During this process, the blood supply to the fibroids is stopped, and this causes the fibroid to shrink.
- Laparoscopic ultrasound-guided radiofrequency fibroid ablation
In this procedure, a laparoscopic ultrasound is used to see the inner side of the uterus and check the location of the fibroids during the process. Then through small incisions, the fibroids are heated with the targeted energy, but the doctors ensure that the healthy tissues around the fibroids are not affected by the heat.
It is a major surgical procedure in which the uterus is removed completely, and sometimes even ovaries can be removed. It is considered as the permanent solution for fibroid if the other solutions don’t work.

- Blood tests: Blood samples are taken to check the signs of anaemia or other health conditions.
- Ultrasound: It is done to check the inner part of the pelvic region for fibroids through imaging.
- Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI): Detailed images are generated with the help of a large magnet and radio waves to show the size and location of the fibroids.
- Hysterosonography: It is also a type of ultrasound procedure in which sterile saline is injected into the uterus to expand it, making it easy for the doctors to see the fibroids that are affecting the uterine lining.
- Hysterosalpingography: In this procedure, the contrast dye is injected to highlight the uterine cavity contour and fallopian tubes in the X-rays.
- Hysteroscopy: In this test, a narrow, lightweight camera is inserted through the cervix in the uterus to check its interior walls.
