Dr. Ramin Mirhashemi, MD of Gynecological Oncology Associates Discusses Uterine Fibroid Treatment with da Vinci Robotic Hysterectomy Surgery
Date:9/28/2010

TORRANCE, Calif., Sept. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Uterine fibroids affect more than 30% of American women. However, many do not exhibit symptoms and therefore do not require fibroid treatment. Uterine fibroids treatment is only required if the fibroids are large enough to cause pressure on other organs (such as the bladder), grow rapidly, cause abnormal bleeding or cause problems with fertility. Uterine fibroids symptoms usually cause heavy or abnormal bleeding and discomfort, but the biggest concern for most women is difficulty in conceiving a baby.

"Minimally invasive uterine fibroids surgery has improved fibroid removal, with fewer complications and a faster recovery," says Dr. Ramin Mirhashemi of Gynecological Oncology Associates. "And with robotic hysterectomy, the technology only improves the procedure." With the use of da Vinci robotic surgery, the surgeon makes small incisions to insert tools and monitor the procedure through a tiny camera that is inserted into the patient.

Removing fibroids is important to preserve fertility and enable conception and implantation of the embryo in the uterine wall and facilitate a full-term, healthy pregnancy. Hysterectomy is the popular uterine fibroid treatment, but it also eliminates the ability for a woman to conceive a child. Traditional open surgery can also affect fertility because of scar tissue that builds from the incision in the uterus.

There are also other less invasive fibrosis treatments, which are less traumatic for the patient but still cannot preserve fertilit
