This is one of the newer hot topics in surgical treatments. Considered minimally invasive, this technique uses several small incisions to remove tumors and repair the uterus. It requires special training prior to implementation. The physician operates instruments via a control panel and does not have direct hands on the patient, unlike open or laparoscopy procedures. Although recovery is much quicker than the traditional myomectomy, treatment can be limited due to the possibility of extensive bleeding during the procedure. The robot can be very successful for pedunculated and subserosal fibroids, but does have limitations for deep, larger intramural fibroid tumors.
