Laparoscopic myomectomy is a modern surgical operation, also known as closed myoma surgery. The uterus consists of three different layers that support each other. These are called the perimetrium, myometrium, and endometrium from the outside to the inside. In some women, benign masses called fibroids may form in the myometrium, which is made up of muscle tissue. These masses, which are seen in one out of every four women, occur most frequently between the ages of 30 and 40. Although most of the time they do not cause any symptoms, in some cases they can cause heavy menstrual bleeding, abdominal swelling and difficulty in conceiving. Laparoscopic myomectomy is the most advanced surgical operation used to remove these masses.

What is Laparoscopic Myomectomy?
Laparoscopic myomectomy is an operation in which masses called fibroids formed in the myometrium layer of the uterus are removed by closed surgical methods. This operation is performed with millimetre surgical incisions under the belly button and with special micro cameras. Therefore, patients who have closed myoma surgery recover much faster than those who have open myoma surgery. At the same time, the scars of the sutures thrown during the surgery are also extremely small. These two factors are among the most important advantages of laparoscopic myoma surgery. This operation is generally preferred for the removal of fibroids smaller than 10 centimetres in size.
