The surgical removal of leiomyomas (fibroids present in the uterus) is known as myomectomy. These fibroids are non-cancerous in nature and are most commonly seen in the uterus. These usually occur in the childbearing years, however, may also occur at any other age as well. The main purpose of the myomectomy procedure is to remove the fibroid from the patient’s body and then restore the uterus. There is another procedure known as hysterectomy which involves the removal of the whole uterus, but in myomectomy, only the fibroids are removed and the uterus remains intact. After the myomectomy procedure, the patients is relieved from the pain, uterine pressure, frequent urination, and heavy bleeding during the menstrual cycle.
