MyoSure® Fibroid and Polyp Removal in Atlanta GA
Have you recently been told that you have uterine fibroids or polyps that may be the cause of painful, heavy periods, or even infertility? Learning about the various treatments currently offered is a great place to start. In certain cases, our Atlanta Gynecologists may recommend MyoSure.
MyoSure is a simple procedure for removal of fibroids, polyps, or other abnormal tissue growth that may cause painful heavy periods or potentially even infertility.
How does MyoSure work?
The entire procedure is relatively quick, lasting only about 30 minutes. By using what is called the MyoSure hysteroscope, your doctor will be able to remove the abnormal tissue that is causing the heavy or painful periods.
The MyoSure procedure is made up of three simple steps:
- Your doctor opens your cervix by inserting a slender camera into your uterus, allowing him or her to see inside.
- Your doctor will then pass a slender wand through your vagina into your uterus. The wand gently cuts the fibroid or polyp into tiny pieces and suctions the removed tissue into the wand and out of your body.
- Once the abnormal tissue growth has been completely broken down and removed from your body, then the wand is removed from your uterus.
The procedure does not require a hospital stay as you are able to go home on the same day. Because you may experience mild cramping following the procedure, your GYN doctor at Atlanta Obstetrics & Gynecology will most likely prescribe you a pain medication.
Why Choose MyoSure?
MyoSure is simple, effective and quick. There are no incisions and your uterus is left fully intact. Not only is the procedure itself quick, but the recovery time is speedy as well, allowing you to resume your normal daily activities within a few days. It is also rare that patients experience any complications following the procedure.
Because your uterus is left fully intact, MyoSure is also a great option for women who are thinking about having children in the future.
Most importantly, MyoSure can relieve you of your heavy, painful periods and may help resolve infertility problems.
How do I know if MyoSure is for me?
If you are experiencing symptoms from your fibroids or polyps such as heavy periods or infertility, then MyoSure may be recommended for you. It is also the recommended treatment option if you are planning on having children in the future.
Many women with fibroids may not have symptoms. If that’s the case for you, MyoSure may not be the best option. Your doctor may instead recommend keeping a close eye on abnormal tissue growth and continue monitoring it in the future. The moment you do start experiencing symptoms, talk to your doctor at Atlanta Obstetrics & Gynecology Associates right away to further discuss treatment.
