Removing uterine fibroids with laparoscopic myomectomy requires special training. Fibroids that are attached to the outside of the uterus by a stalk (pedunculated fibroids) are the easiest to remove laparoscopically.


Laparoscopic surgery is usually performed as out-patient surgery under general anesthesia. The procedure can take one to three hours, depending on the number, size, and depth of the fibroids within the muscle wall.

Following laparoscopic myomectomy many women are able to leave the hospital the same day, although a one-night stay may be necessary. Because the incisions are small, recuperation is usually associated with minimal discomfort. After laparoscopic myomectomy, women usually return to normal activity within ten to fourteen days.
