Fibroids are non cancerous cell growth present in the uterus. Generally, presence of fibroids does not exhibit any symptoms. In situation when the tumors grow big, they might cause pain in the abdominal area and lower back followed by heavy bleeding during the menstrual cycle, constipation, and frequent urination. In some cases they can also lead to infertility. The exact causes for fibroid formation is unknown, however high estrogen levels are accounted to the formation of fibroids.
There are numerous types of fibroid that are classified depending on the place of location and the size of the growth. When the fibroids grow in size, they extend and occupy the womb leading to infertility.

At ARC hospital we rely on minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery that involves making few small incisions in the lower abdominal area to inserts a laparoscope and other surgical tools. A laparoscope is a long tubular structure that has a camera attached and connected to its end to view enlarged images of the internal cavity in a monitor. This enables the surgeon to remove the fibroids without damaging the surrounding tissues and organs. Later, the incision are closed and stitched. The minimally invasive surgical methods have numerous benefits when compared to an open surgery with few small incisions, faster healing and recovery period with minimal scar formation.

Forced ultrasound surgery (FUS) that uses high-energy frequency sound waves to destroy the fibroids.
