Submucosal Myoma Removal


Submucosal myomas are noncancerous growths that develop within the uterine cavity, often causing symptoms such as heavy menstrual bleeding, pelvic pain, and infertility. Submucosal myoma removal, also known as hysteroscopic myomectomy, is a minimally invasive surgical procedure used to remove these growths while preserving the uterus. This procedure is performed using a hysteroscope, a thin, flexible tube with a camera and light attached, which is inserted through the vagina and cervix into the uterus. At our clinic in Indore, we offer submucosal myoma removal as a safe and effective treatment option for women experiencing symptoms related to submucosal myomas.


During a submucosal myoma removal procedure, the surgeon inserts the hysteroscope into the uterus and uses specialized instruments to locate and remove the submucosal myomas. The myomas are carefully dissected from the uterine wall and extracted through the vagina, leaving the uterus intact. In some cases, additional techniques such as morcellation may be used to divide larger myomas into smaller pieces for easier removal. Submucosal myoma removal is typically performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia, and most women can return home the same day.


Benefits of Submucosal Myoma Removal:

  • Preserves Uterus: Submucosal myoma removal allows for the removal of symptomatic myomas while preserving the uterus, making it an ideal option for women who wish to maintain their fertility or avoid a hysterectomy.
  • Minimally Invasive: Hysteroscopic myomectomy is performed entirely through the vagina and cervix, resulting in no external incisions, minimal postoperative pain, and faster recovery times compared to traditional open surgery.
  • Improved Symptoms: Removal of submucosal myomas can significantly improve symptoms such as heavy menstrual bleeding, pelvic pain, and infertility, allowing women to regain their quality of life and overall well-being.

Frequently asked questions

Submucosal myoma removal is designed to remove symptomatic myomas while preserving the uterus, making it an ideal option for women who wish to maintain their fertility. However, the impact on fertility may vary depending on factors such as the size and location of the myomas and the patient’s overall reproductive health. Your surgeon will discuss the potential impact on fertility and pregnancy with you before the procedure.

Recovery times vary depending on factors such as the size and number of myomas removed, the complexity of the surgery, and the patient’s overall health. Most women can resume normal activities within a few days to a week after surgery, although strenuous activities should be avoided for several weeks to allow for proper healing.

While submucosal myoma removal is effective in relieving symptoms and improving quality of life, there is a small risk of myomas recurring or new myomas developing over time. Your surgeon will discuss the likelihood of recurrence and provide guidance on follow-up care and monitoring after the procedure.

Like any surgical procedure, submucosal myoma removal carries some risks, including bleeding, infection, injury to surrounding structures, and adverse reactions to anesthesia. Your surgeon will discuss these risks with you before the procedure and take steps to minimize them.
