Dr. Rishma provides tips for safe laparoscopic multiple myomectomy. Robotic approach may be favored for cases with higher complexity and multiple fibroids myomectomy. Newer modalities of treatment include magnetic resonance-guided high-intensity focused ultrasound; ultra sound guided high-intensity focused ultrasound, uterine artery embolization (laparoscopic bilateral uterine artery occlusion, transvaginal Doppler guided vascular clamp) and radio frequency ablation of fibroids (intrauterine ultrasound guided and laparoscopic radio frequency ablation). The role of medical management in fibroids and current guidelines for management of fibroids are included.
