How Myomectomy Reduces Fibroid Symptoms

How Myomectomy Reduces Fibroid Symptoms

 If you’re living with fibroids, you know firsthand how challenging that can be. From heavy menstrual bleeding to pelvic pain and fertility issues, this condition can put a damper on your life. Luckily, solutions like myomectomy can save the day by reducing fibroid symptoms and improving your overall well-being. 

At Desert Hills Care Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, board-certified OB/GYN Dr. Helard  Ballon-Hennings, MD, FACOG, and our dedicated team offer myomectomy (fibroid removal) to reduce unpleasant symptoms and your risk of complications. 

So, if you’re ready to explore how myomectomy works and the benefits it offers for managing your fibroid symptoms, keep reading! 

Understanding myomectomy 

Let’s start with the basics. What is a myomectomy? It’s a surgical procedure aimed at removing fibroids from the uterus. Unlike a hysterectomy, which involves removing your uterus, a myomectomy targets only the fibroids. 

Along with removing just your fibroids, myomectomy can be performed using different techniques. Traditional open surgery, laparoscopic surgery, robotic-assisted surgery, and  minimally invasive approaches with smaller incisions and less postoperative pain are all options available to you. 

Myomectomy for fibroid symptom relief 

Now, let’s unravel why myomectomy is so beneficial for reducing fibroid symptoms. Here’s a closer look at how this technique provides relief: 

Reduced menstrual bleeding 

If you’re dealing with fibroids, you may also be struggling with heavy menstrual bleeding. By removing fibroids that contribute to abnormal uterine bleeding, myomectomy can significantly reduce menstrual flow and improve your overall quality of life. 

Alleviated pelvic pain

Another key way myomectomy can reduce your fibroid symptoms is by easing pelvic pain and discomfort by removing the source of your pain. This can lead to improved pelvic health overall. 

Improved fertility 

If you’re struggling with infertility due to your fibroids, myomectomy can be a saving grace. By removing fibroids that interfere with your uterine cavity or affect implantation, myomectomy can increase the likelihood of successful conception and pregnancy. 

Personalized treatment approach 

When it comes to reducing fibroid symptoms, it’s especially important to prioritize a personalized treatment approach. Luckily, Dr. Ballon-Hennings is well-versed in tailoring solutions to individual needs and preferences. Here’s why this is crucial in your healing journey: 

Patient-centered care 

By working closely with you and addressing your needs, Dr. Ballon-Hennings can diagnose and treat your specific fibroid symptoms for long-lasting relief. 

Minimally invasive options 

Tailoring treatment to your specific needs, Dr. Ballon-Hennings provides minimally invasive options such as robotic myomectomy or hysteroscopic myomectomy, each offering unique benefits. Not only do these options minimize discomfort, but they also expedite recovery, ensuring a smoother postoperative experience.

Comprehensive care 

Along with offering different procedure options, you’ll also get a comprehensive treatment approach for your fibroids. This may include medical management, lifestyle changes, and other interventions to optimize your individual outcome and overall wellness. 

Although living with fibroids is challenging and affects your quality of life, it doesn’t have to control you. With a myomectomy, there’s hope for relief, improved fertility, and a happier future.
