YES: Minimal scars for myomectomy is via robotic surgery. Look into a gyn surgeon that is trained in robotic surgery.

Consider ufe: American college of obstetrics and gynecology reccomended uterine fibroid embolization as an alternative to surgery for symptomatic fibroids. It is a minimally invasive procedure that is highly effective and low risk.
