SURGICAL SERVICES | MYOSURE FIBROID AND POLYPS REMOVAL
MyoSure® Fibroid and Polyps Removal
is a simple procedure that eliminates intrauterine tissue such as fibroids and polyps without having to remove or even cut the uterus. Your doctor inserts an instrument into the uterus through the vagina to take out the fibroid. Once the fibroid has been removed, your period should go back to normal. The MyoSure procedure is the ideal treatment option if you are looking to reduce your heavy bleeding caused by polyps or fibroids, while retaining a fully functional uterus.
What are uterine fibroids?
Fibroids are non-cancerous tissue growths in the muscle walls of the uterus. Another medical term for fibroids is “leiomyoma” or just “myoma.” Fibroids can grow as a single mass, or there can be multiple fibroids in the uterus. They can be as small as an apple seed or as big as a grapefruit.
There are several different fibroid types, with different names depending on where they grow on the uterus. Fibroids can grow:
- On a stalk either inside or outside the uterus – pedunculated fibroid.
- Just below the lining of the uterus – submucosal fibroids.
- In the middle of the uterine wall – intramural fibroids.
- Under the outer covering of the uterus – subserousal fibroids.
What are Uterine Polyps?
Uterine polyps are protrusions of tissue that grow on the uterine lining (endometrium). Polyps form when the same kind of cells as the lining itself start growing abnormally. They can range in size from a few centimeters (the size of a small seed) up to the size of a golf ball. Over time, they can become fragile and bleed.
If you have fibroids or polyps that are located inside your uterus (submucous fibroids or endometrial polyps), the MyoSure procedure is a safe treatment option. Your doctor will be able to determine the treatment option that best matches your specific condition.
