Multiple Modalities of Myomectomy - Live and Virtual
Sunday, March 27, 2022 | 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm CT
Course Director: Matthew T. Siedhoff, MD
Course Faculty: Arnold P. Advincula, MD, Hye-Chun Hur, MD, Mireille D. Truong, MD, Kelly N. Wright, MD

This course provides a comprehensive review of the principles and techniques of various modalities of uterine-preserving myomectomy for fibroids. Faculty will use video extensively to illustrate techniques that allow successful outcomes.

For centuries, the “preferred” surgery for women with these benign growths has been the removal of the entire organ (i.e., hysterectomy). But the reasons for that preference—that hysterectomy is safer and a better operation—will be questioned by a review of the medical literature. The course will demonstrate, with high-quality evidence and video presentation, including all modalities of minimally invasive myomectomy--hysteroscopy, laparoscopy, robotic-assisted, and laparotomy. We will also demonstrate appropriate workup to optimize patients for the OR and discuss how to counsel and manage these women postoperatively.
