Removal of fibroid: Laparoscopic myomectomy refers to a minimally invasive approach to removal of fibroids and uterine preservation. Generally it requires 3-4 small incisions around your belly button. Recovery is quicker and studies demonstrate efficacy and safety similar to traditional open surgery.
