Myomectomy (Fibroid Removal)

  • What is a Myomectomy (Fibroid Removal)


    Myomectomy (also known as fibroidectomy) is a surgical procedure that is done to remove a fibroid from your uterus. The procedure aims to remove only the fibroid, leaving your uterus in place.

    It is commonly done for women with a fibroid(s) that is causing pain, bleeding or problems with childbearing. It is typically done through abdominal surgery or minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery.

  • Myomectomy is needed when women of childbearing age experience fibroid symptoms, such as pain, heavy bleeding, that affect their normal activities but who wish to have children or who do not want a hysterectomy (womb removal). Other common symptoms include a persistent bloatedness, pressure on the bladder and frequent urination.

    If surgery for uterine fibroid(s) is necessary, a gynaecologist may recommend myomectomy instead of hysterectomy for the following reasons:

    • A desire to have children in the future
    • Uterine fibroid may be affecting a women’s fertility
    • A desire to keep the uterus
  • Our dedicated team of obstetricians & gynaecologists are experienced in diagnosing and managing a wide range of women’s health conditions.

    To enable patients to make informed decisions, Gleneagles Hospital accepts bill financing from both local and international private hospitalisation insurance and MediSave-approved insurance known as Integrated Shield Plans. With an Integrated Shield Plan, treatment costs for the procedure and hospital stay may be more manageable than expected.
