Robotic myomectomy is a minimally invasive way for surgeons to remove your uterine fibroids. You and your doctor can discuss your treatment options. Possible advantages of robotic myomectomy are that you'll likely have less pain, lose less blood and return to normal activities more quickly than you might after traditional open surgery.
