Abdominal Myomectomy Treatment in Jumeirah, Dubai

It’s normal for people to get nervous at the thought of having myomectomy surgery. In addition to undergoing the actual operation, the wound needs time to heal. Until it does, it may cause pain, and there’s a chance it might get infected. But there’s a way to reduce the discomfort and risk. It’s a different kind of operation, called laparoscopic surgery. The process takes its name from the laparoscope, a slender instrument that has a tiny video camera and light on the end. When a surgeon inserts it through a small cut and into the patient’s body, he can look at a video monitor and see what’s happening.

Surgical removal of uterine fibroids is referred to as myomectomy surgery. The fibroids appear in the uterus during the fertile years. Main goal of myomectomy surgery is to stop symptoms of fibroids by removal of the fibroids. The uterus is left intact despite the fibroids being removed.

Why a Myomectomy Surgery is Done

Myomectomy are a choice for women: who plan to get pregnant, fertility is affected by fibroids and one wants to keep the uterus.

Risks of Abdominal Myomectomy Treatment

Complication rates of abdominal myomectomy treatment are minimal, but there are risks.

  • Excessive blood loss. Anemia is caused by the increased blood loss. Reduced blood loss can increase the chances of complications. A doctor has a plan of how to increase the blood levels. Surgeons block blood flow by blocking arteries supplying the uterus. Medications are injected into the fibroids to restrict blood vessels.
  • Cicatricial tissue. Incisions often lead to scar tissue and adhesions. Scarring can cause adhesions hence blocking organs such as a fallopian tube. Asherman’s syndrome are rare adhesions found in the uterus leading to poor menstrual periods.
  • Complications in childbirth and pregnancy. Myomectomy increases the chances of complication in childbirth. Having an incision, increases the chances of a caesarean section.
  • Remote possibility of a hysterectomy.
  • Remote possibility of cancerous tumor spreading

Ways to Prevent Further Complications

  • Vitamin and iron supplements: It help increase the blood count before surgery.
  • Hormonal treatment: To stop the menstrual cycle.
  • Therapy to reduce fibroids: Gonadotropin releasing hormone agonist therapy, to reduce the fibroids to improve the ease of surgery.

What You Can Do

Food and medicines

Other preparations

What We Can Do

There are three approaches the surgeon can choose to take.

Abdominal myomectomy

Incision is made to the abdomen and used to remove the fibroids.

A horizontal line in the bikini line. It is one inch above the pubic bone. It follows the natural waistline hence less painful as compared to the vertical line. A large fibroid is ineffective for such an incision.

Vertical incision. An incision from the middle of the abdomen down to the navel. It is rarely used unless the uterus is large.

Robotic or laparoscopic myomectomy

They are the least invasive since small incisions are made into the abdomen.

After the procedure

Analgesics are prescribed to help the client fight the pain after surgery. Physical activities and diet are restricted to ensure one heals well.
