Dr. Bozdogan uses robotic myomectomy to remove uterine fibroids, which are benign growths in the tissues of your uterus. Uterine fibroids may be so small you aren’t aware of them, or large enough to cause your abdomen to swell, and you can have one or many fibroids of varying sizes.
If you’ve been experiencing debilitating period pain or heavy bleeding during menstruation, this could be due to uterine fibroids, so it’s worth booking an appointment at a specialist clinic such as the Advanced Endometriosis Center.
Robotic myomectomy is a method of removing fibroids from your uterus without the need for open surgery. Dr. Bozdogan is a distinguished OB/GYN who specializes in robotic myomectomy.
He carries out the procedure at the Advanced Endometriosis Center offices by making small incisions in your abdomen using the da VinciⓇ robotic surgical system. Dr. Bozdogan performs the operation under general anesthetic, and the procedure takes between one and three hours, depending on how many fibroids you have.
Using robotic technology enables Dr. Bozdogan to keep the size of the incisions he makes as small as possible, reducing your discomfort and enhancing recovery. Because it’s a far less invasive method of removing fibroids, your incisions take less time to heal and affect fewer tissues, meaning you feel less pain, lose less blood, and heal more quickly.
Most women take just two to three weeks to get back to normal after the procedure, and you should find your period pain and heavy bleeding significantly improved following a robotic myomectomy.
The first stage is to find out for sure what’s causing your symptoms. At the Advanced Endometriosis Center clinics, you undergo a thorough assessment to confirm your diagnosis and assess the size and location of your fibroids.
Dr. Bozdogan will then discuss the treatment options available and help you make an informed decision on how to proceed. You should experience an immediate improvement in your symptoms following robotic myomectomy surgery.
