What are fibroids?
Uterine fibroids are very common non-cancerous (benign) growths or lumps that develop in the muscular wall of the uterus during childbearing years.
Symptoms of fibroids
Fibroids can cause any of the following symptoms:
Laparoscopic removal of fibroids
Laparoscopic myomectomy is the minimally invasive procedure that is performed to remove uterine fibroids while retaining the uterus. The procedure is less invasive and requires only small incisions for the laparoscopic instruments to enter the abdomen and remove fibroids.
Procedure: The procedure is performed under general anaesthesia and with small incisions of around 5mm in the abdomen. The abdominal cavity is now filled with carbon dioxide gas and a thin, lighted telescope (also called laparoscope) is introduced into the abdomen through small incision. The laparoscope, which has a camera attached, allows the surgeon to view ovaries, fallopian tubes and uterus on the wide monitor attached with laparoscope. Other instruments are inserted through other incisions to cut and remove fibroids from the uterine muscles. After removal, the uterine muscles are sewn back, carbon dioxide gas is released and finally skin incisions are closed. Rashmi nursing home provides laparoscopic surgeries for fibroids treatment in Bangalore.

If you remember, I was admitted at your hospital for a large fibroid. Everyone had advised open surgery, and you suggested laparoscopic surgery. I am happy I believed in you. You did the surgery
