If fibroids are interfering with your quality of life, don’t hesitate to contact our trusted team for a consultation.
Who Needs MyoSure?
While most common in women in their 40s and 50s, uterine fibroids can occur at any age. These benign tumors may be as small as a pea or as large as a melon, and can cause a number of side effects. Women with the following fibroid symptoms may want to consider MyoSure ablation:
- Heavy menstrual bleeding
- Pain and cramping
- Frequent urination (due to pressure on the bladder)
- Bulging stomach area
- Trouble conceiving a baby or carrying a pregnancy to term
MyoSure offers safe, effective relief for fibroid sufferers. A simple outpatient treatment, MyoSure allows surgeons to remove fibroids without creating an incision in the abdomen or removing the uterus (hysterectomy).
MyoSure can also prove effective for women with uterine polyps. Polyps are small tumors that are usually benign, and can limit blood flow to the endometrial lining and prevent an embryo from implanting. If you’re suffering from polyps and having trouble conceiving, you may want to consider MyoSure.
What Does MyoSure Polypectomy Involve?
The Myosure polypectomy procedure is performed on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia at the newly remodeled Surgical Gynecology Center in Beverly Hills. During this minimally invasive treatment, your gynecologic surgeon will pass a slim wand through the vagina into the uterus. The wand has a camera on the end, allowing the doctor to see into the uterus. Using the side of the wand, your surgeon can gently remove fibroids or polyps, which are then absorbed into the device. Patients should experience no pain or discomfort during the MyoSure procedure, and will be able to go home the same day as their surgery. In most cases, the procedure takes just 30 minutes and offers significant relief for fibroid sufferers.
