Myths About Laparoscopic Myomectomy
Dr. Antonio Gargiulo of Brigham and Women’s Hospital discusses the myths associated with Laparoscopic Myomectomy. The first myth is that minimal invasive myomectomy would not be able to remove all fibroids because you are not actually removing the organs in your hand. This has not been shown to be the case. The rate of “real” operation needed after laparoscopic versus non-laparoscopic is the same.

Myomectomy and Childbirth
Dr. Serene Srouji of the Center for Reproductive Medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital answers the question, “Does having a myomectomy affect childbirth?” A myomectomy is a procedure that sometimes is necessary.

Hysterectomy vs. Myomectomy
Dr. Antonio Gargiulo of Brigham and Women’s Hospital discusses the difference between a hysterectomy and myomectomy.
