If you plan to have surgery to remove fibroids, the operation is called a myomectomy. Your doctor will take out the fibroid(s) and keep your uterus in place.

A myomectomy can be done using open surgery through one large incision (cut). It can also be done using minimally invasive surgery (laparoscopy), which also includes da Vinci® Surgery. da Vinci technology enables surgeons to operate through a few small incisions, like traditional laparoscopy, instead of a large incision. The da Vinci System is a robotically-assisted surgical device that your surgeon is 100% in control of at all times.
