MYOMA Surgeries

Myomas are benign tumors that form in the uterus and are frequently seen during women's reproductive years. Their size and severity of symptoms can vary. If fibroids are causing symptoms or are uncomfortable for them to grow, surgery may be considered. In this article, we will cover the topic in more detail, presenting the basic information about myoma surgeries.

Types of Myoma Surgeries

  1. Myomectomy: In this type of surgery, only myomas are removed and the uterus is tried to be preserved. If the woman has plans to have children in the future, myomectomy may be preferred.

  2. Hysterectomy: In this type of surgery, the uterus is completely removed. Hysterectomy may be preferred in cases where fibroids are large or cause severe symptoms. If the woman has no plans to have children and other treatment options don't work, a hysterectomy may be considered.

  3. Laparoscopic or Robotic Surgery: In this minimally invasive type of surgery, small incisions are made and cameras and special surgical instruments are used. In this way, the healing process can be shorter.

Surgery Process and Healing

Myoma surgeries are usually performed with general anesthesia. The operation process may vary according to the type of surgery and the size of the fibroids. The healing process also varies depending on the type of surgery and the woman's body structure.

Risks and Reactions

Like any surgery, fibroid surgeries involve potential risks. In addition to risks such as infection, bleeding and organ damage, postoperative pain and problems in the healing process can also be seen.

Myomas are tumors called uterine fibroids and can affect women's health. The size of the fibroids and the severity of the symptoms can affect the decision to have surgery. Myoma surgeries can be performed in various ways according to the patient's condition and needs. It is important to seek advice from a specialist doctor before surgery and to understand the risks and benefits of surgery.
