Fibroid Removal in BURLINGTON, NJ
In the medical field fibroids are called myomas, so the surgery to remove these from the uterus is termed a myomectomy. A myomectomy leave the uterus in place. A hysterectomy is the term for removing the uterus. Thus a hysterectomy can be a solution for fibroids for those women who no longer care to become pregnant. The doctors at South Jersey Fertility Center in Burlington, NJ don’t typically perform hysterectomies because we concentrate on women hoping to maintain their fertility. The women suffering with fibroids who want to maintain their ability to bare children can choose a myomectomy. There are at least 3 different surgical approaches by which a myomectomy can be performed. The type of surgical approach depends on the location, size and number of fibroids present. There are also a couple of non-surgical measures to try to alleviate the suffering from fibroids, though pregnancy is not recommended with the non-surgical methods.
