Introduction to Myomectomy
Women’s Clinic of Johnson County can help when you feel held back by your reproductive health.
Fibroids, or noncancerous tumors/growths in the cervix, can cause many issues for patients. Typically developed during childbearing years, fibroids can fall anywhere from mildly disruptive to totally life-altering. Luckily, the providers at Women’s Clinic of Johnson County have extensive experience with helping patients manage their fibroid symptoms. And when conservative measures no longer help, a myomectomy (fibroid removal surgery) can be another great tool at our disposal to improve symptoms.

How it Works
A myomectomy is a surgery that involves removing fibroids from the uterine wall.
Depending on the number and severity of your fibroids, this surgery can last anywhere from 1 to 2 hours. Before the procedure begins, your provider will conduct a comprehensive exam, including the use of ultrasound (and sometimes ordering a pelvic MRI), to identify the precise location of your fibroid(s). We will also provide you with post-operative instructions, listed below, to help you heal quickly and efficiently.
Most of our patients require a hospital stay after their myomectomy surgery in Kansas City. We will go over all of this information with you in advance to ensure you have time to adequately plan and schedule the surgery for a time that works best for you.

Some women assume they need a full hysterectomy to alleviate symptoms caused by fibroids. However, a myomectomy can be less invasive and require less downtime than a hysterectomy. It often eases pain and discomfort and can help improve chances of becoming pregnant, for those whose fibroids had previously made it difficult.
