Surgery is the treatment of choice for myomas. Myomectomy has undergone a dramatic evolution over the years. Laparoscopic myomectomy provides a preferable alternative to abdominal myomectomy for women with symptomatic fibroids who desire uterine preservation. It is also an excellent method for women who have infertility primarily related to fibroids. A lot of patients prefer myomectomy over hysterectomy even if they do not desire pregnancy.

For good results, the use of a few technical tricks provides an optimal solution for all issues.
