MyoSure (patient brochure) is a simple procedure that eliminates your fibroids without having to remove or even cut the uterus. Your doctor inserts an instrument into the uterus through the vagina to take out the fibroid. Once the fibroid has been removed, your period should go back to normal. The MyoSure procedure is the ideal treatment option if you are looking to reduce your heavy bleeding caused by polyps or fibroids, while retaining a fully functional uterus.
There are three simple steps to the MyoSure procedure:
Step 1: 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.
Step 2: Your doctor passes a slender wand through your vagina into your uterus. The side of the wand gently cuts the fibroid or polyp into tiny pieces and suctions the removed tissue through a small open window into the wand and out of your body.
Step 3: Once the fibroid has been taken away, the wand is removed from the uterus. Nothing is left in your body after the procedure.
