What type of specialist should I look for to have fibrous remove robotic surgical or are there any listed here that I may talk with. Thank you?

Fibroids: I think that fibroids is what you're talking. They are little muscular tumors in the wall of a woman's uterus. They can be removed by a surgeon or GYN surgeon or they may opt for removal of the uterus all together. Just ask the surgeons in your area if they use surgical robots. Personally, I would be more concerned about a surgeon's reputation than his robot. Good luck :) ...Read more

Assuming that you are ovulating regularly, and the partner has a normal sperm count, see your healthcare provider and ask about an x-ray of your tubes (hysterosalpingogram), which can open both tubes. ...Read more
