What Is the MyoSure Procedure?
A SIMPLE, MINIMALLY INVASIVE PROCEDURE
The MyoSure tissue removal procedure is a novel system, which I have set up at the Wellington Hospital. It allows me to remove fibroids, polyps and other intrauterine tissue without having to remove the uterus.
It is a straightforward procedure, and I perform this procedure under a light general anaesthetic.
The Myosure hysteroscope is introduced into your uterus through the vagina and cervix. I use it to gently cut away at the unwanted tissue to take it out of your body.
On average, a 3 cm fibroid (about the size of a grape) can be removed in approximately 10 minutes. The MyoSure procedure is designed to allow me to remove any growths in your uterus, while preserving uterine function and form. This is especially important if you want to have children in the future. Postoperative care is minimal, women experience minimal pain.
How the MyoSure Procedure Works
There are three simple steps to the MyoSure procedure:
Your doctor opens your cervix (the opening to the uterus) slightly by passing through the body's natural openings (i.e., through the vagina) and inserts a slender camera through your cervix and into your uterus, allowing him or her to see inside.
The MyoSure procedure is typically an outpatient procedure; you can go home the same day!
