Benefits and Risks of the MyoSure Procedure
The MyoSure procedure is used primarily to perform either a myomectomy (removal of fibroids) or polypectomy (removal of polyps). It allows your doctor to remove the unwanted uterine tissue without having to remove the uterus. Because of this, your uterus form and function are retained. As a result, this may be an appropriate treatment option if you are looking to reduce heavy menstrual bleeding caused by polyps or fibroids, yet still want to preserve your chances for having children in the future.
Not All Women Are Candidates for the MyoSure Tissue Removal Procedure
Your doctor will first rule out more serious causes of your heavy bleeding, then help you decide if the procedure is right for you.
The MyoSure tissue removal system should not be used if you are pregnant, have a pelvic infection or cervical malignancies or have had previously diagnosed uterine cancer.
