Myomectomy is a very common condition of the womb. Statistics show 1 in 5 women at age 30-55 had a Myoma with a wide variety of symptoms. Myoma is caused by a cells mutation that turn into hard connective tissue (fibroblasts). Then grow slowly which eventually enlarged with hard tissue to palpate. Myoma uteri can be presentwith some of the following symptoms.
Conventional surgical removal of Myoma would have higher risk of bleeding and post operative adhesions. Laparoscopy may be a surgical option to remove myoma, howevere in complicated case espescially in difficult access removal of the myoma is not optimal. These robotic tools can assist surgeons to reach the blood vessels and very difficult access.
Myoma surgery has gained FDA approval in the United States where robotic myomectomy and hysterectomy became one of routine procedures there. With minimal surgical wound patient may expect only about 1-2 daysof recovery and routine activities can be done within several days.
