Myomectomy

One alternative to hysterectomy is myomectomy – or surgical removal of uterine fibroids. It is estimated that up to one third of all hysterectomies are performed for this reason. Myomectomy preserves the uterus, and so it may be recommended for women who wish to become pregnant. About 65,000 myomectomies are performed annually in the United States.
