Abdominal Myomectomy Surgery in Brooklyn
Abdominal myomectomy (performed via laparotomy; also referred to as open myomectomy) is the surgical removal of leiomyomas from the uterus,
leaving the uterus in place.
The most common indications for abdominal myomectomy are abnormal uterine bleeding or bulk-related symptoms (eg, pelvic/abdominal pain or pressure). Indications for which the benefit of myomectomy is unproven include: evaluation of pelvic malignancy (eg, ovarian or uterine cancer), infertility, and prevention of obstetric complications.
