Uterine fibroids are benign muscular growths that grow on the uterus itself or on the inside of it. They can cause irregular or heavy uterine bleeding, inhibit fertility or if grow large enough can cause abdominal pain. Many times women are told they need a hysterectomy (removal of the uterus) to treat fibroids or are told they need a large abdominal incision to remove the fibroids or complete the hysterectomy. The surgical team utilizes the latest technology to remove Uterine Fibroids laparoscopically as an outpatient surgery, minimizing patient down-time and maximizing a speedy recovery.
