Robotic Myomectomy (Fibroidectomy)

A new category of minimally invasive myomectomy, Robotic Myomectomy, combines the best of open and laparoscopic surgery. Sometimes called a fibroidectomy, a myomectomy refers to the surgical removal of uterine fibroids. With the assistance of the da Vinci® Surgical System, the latest evolution in robotics technology, surgeons can remove uterine fibroids through small incisions with unmatched precision and control, and is offered at St. Elizabeth's Medical Center in Boston, Massachusetts, and Good Samaritan Medical Center in Brockton, Massachusetts. Among the potential benefits of da Vinci Myomectomy as compared to traditional open abdominal surgery are:

  • Opportunity for future pregnancy
  • Faster recovery and shorter hospital stay
  • Fewer stitches and less scarring 
  • Lower risk of complications and infections
  • Less blood loss and the need for transfusions
  • Quicker return to normal activities

Robotic myomectomy is performed with the da Vinci Surgical System, which allows your surgeon to perform a minimally invasive, yet remarkably precise, comprehensive reconstruction of the uterine wall, regardless of the size or location of your fibroids. The unique level of control and precision of da Vinci can also help your surgeon provide the most precise and thorough reconstruction possible. This can help to prevent a possible uterine rupture (tearing) during future pregnancies.
