Myomectomy treats uterine fibroids (benign tumors) by surgically removing the fibroids from the uterus. While many fibroids need no treatment, others can cause uterine bleeding or pain and may require removal. Fibroids can also cause infertility and miscarriages.
Doctors recommend a myomectomy for women who suffer with fibroids and want to become pregnant. Myomectomy is the preferred alternative to a hysterectomy, which removes the entire uterus. Other fibroid treatments include uterine fibroid embolization, which shrinks the fibroids, and medication.
