Fibroids are non-cancerous growths that develop in the uterus and can cause a range of symptoms such as heavy periods, pelvic pain, and frequent urination. While fibroids are not life-threatening, they can impact a woman's quality of life and may require treatment.
Traditionally, fibroids were treated with a hysterectomy, a surgical procedure that removes the uterus. Today, many women are choosing alternative treatment with minimally invasive surgery such as laparoscopic or robotic surgery. These procedures have the benefit of a shorter recovery time with less pain and scarring. In addition to the physical benefits, minimally invasive surgery also offers women the option to preserve their fertility.
Overall, minimally invasive surgery for fibroids is a safe and effective option for many women. Call to schedule an appointment today if you are struggling with the effects of fibroids.
