Warning! Graphic pictures! Myomectomy

This patient was a young lady with multiple fibroids and wants to conceive.  We performed a myomectomy procedure removing one large fibroid and four smaller ones.  The pictures here show the process of removing the large one.

Jane is using her finger to shell out the fibroid from the uterine wall.

The fibroid sits in the muscle and usually will come out of its site by peeling the uterine wall away from it.

It is ready to remove from the uterus.
