What Is A Myomectomy?
A myomectomy is performed to remove uterine fibroids, which are benign growths that form around and in the uterus. Fibroids, which usually occur during childbearing years, can lead to pelvic pain, as well as heavy periods and pregnancy complications. There are a variety of ways to treat uterine fibroids, but if you want the opportunity to have children in the future, board-certified gynecologist Dr. Linda Sodoma suggests a myomectomy. For more information on myomectomies, contact Life Care for Women in Gilbert, AZ.
How Is Myomectomy Performed?
If you have uterine fibroids, we provide a variety of treatments based on your particular condition, such as the type and size of the fibroids. Myomectomy is performed as an outpatient procedure at our Gilbert, AZ office and is usually performed using the da Vinci® robotic surgery, a laparoscopic treatment. This involves using a small incision and is considered minimally invasive, leading to a shorter recovery time. Once we make the incision, Dr. Sodoma will remove the fibroid, then stitch your incision up. From there, you'll be released to go home to rest and recover. We will provide you with at-home care instructions to help you heal successfully, which usually takes between 2 – 4 weeks.
Life Care For Women Reviews
Dr. Sodoma is the best! Terrific Dr plus the entire staff - everyone is always helpful, friendly, and attentive. It’s not just routine care, Dr is interested in your health, catching any issues early, and your quality of life.
Dr. Sodoma was my 2nd opinion and now my first choice moving forward. I was disheartened when I first heard of my situation and a patient recommended I see her doctor-Sodoma. My consult with her was 180 degrees from what I was told from the previous doctor. Sodoma took lead on my operation and the other doctors were excited to work with her postop which felt like further validation that I had chosen the right doctor for my care. A 20 year+ situation is now resolved and I have very little scarring. My body is rejuvenated and I can participate in life more fully.
Dr. Sodoma was so nice, helpful and receptive to my concerns. She explained things well and answered questions without making me feel rushed. The front and back staff was also friendly and engaging and I was taken promptly at my appointment time. Very good experience.
The whole staff makes you feel comfortable. They are pleasant and always have a smile on their faces.
Dr. Sodoma is amazing, she listened to my concerns and gave me recommendations to improve my quality of life. I truly appreciate her expertise. Awesome doctor!
