Laparoscopic Myomectomy

Laparoscopic Myomectomy

Laparoscopic myomectomy is a surgical procedure also named robotic myomectomy performed to remove uterine fibroids (also known as myomas) using minimally invasive techniques. The procedure involves making small incisions in the abdomen and inserting a laparoscope (a thin, lighted instrument with a camera) and other surgical instruments through the incisions to remove the fibroids.

Surgeons at Punya Hospital performed several surgeries over their career of 23 years. They are leading the healthcare service efficiently in Bangalore and have cured many people through their surgeries and medications.

During the procedure, the surgeon at Punya Hospital uses the laparoscope to visualize the fibroids and surrounding tissues and then removes the fibroids using specialized instruments. The procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia and may require an overnight hospital stay.
