Factors that affect Fibroid Treatment Cost in India
An important expense when it comes to your fibroid removal surgery is going to be your gynecologist's fees. IndiCurerecommends experienced, skilled, board-certified surgeons who are capable of delivering successful surgeries. The price tag may vary depending on the experience of the surgeon, popularity, and the approach to treatment.
Type of Treatment Required
There are different treatment options for fibroids depending on your age, size, location of fibroids and whether or not you wish to get pregnant in the future. These treatment options include myomectomy, embolization or hysterectomy. The cost of fibroids treatment would vary to a great extent on what is the most suitable treatment for you.
Type of Surgical Approach
A significant portion of the overall cost of the surgery arises from the use of any customized surgical instruments or specialized computer technology. With the hopes of improving patient care, new techniques and technologies are often introduced to the surgical process. Such innovative advancements in the surgical approach can increase costs.
Having your fibroids removal surgery in an accredited surgical facility by skilled and qualified medical staff is a critical factor. Moreover, the geographical location of this facility also affects the initial quote. But, IndiCure provides you with a projected estimate that will be affordable.

What is Fibroid Treatment?
Tumors that grow in the muscular wall of the uterus are called "Uterine fibroids". These are benign tumors that are noncancerous in nature and are developed from the smooth muscle tissue of the uterus. This mass can generally develop in childbearing years and may grow quite large and their size may differ from the size of a pea to a lemon. The exact cause of the development of fibroids is still unknown but several factors influence their formation including family history and hormonal changes.
Since fibroids do not produce early symptoms, it is difficult to diagnose them early. It is estimated that every 3 out of 4 women have some or the other form of fibroids in their lifetime. The lady having fibroids may experience symptoms like heavy menstrual flow, prolonged menses, frequent urination, constipation, back or leg pains, difficulty in emptying the bladder, pain in pelvic area etc.
Types of Fibroids:
There are mainly 4 types of fibroids that develop at different locations in and on the uterus.
Intramural fibroids: These are the most common type of fibroids which prominently appear within the muscle lining (endometrium) of the uterus.
Submucosal fibroids: These types of fibroids form in the inner lining (myometrium) of the uterus and may extend into the uterine cavity. These are not as common as other types of fibroids but may cause heavy menstrual bleeding and trouble in conceiving when developed.
Subserosal fibroids: These types of fibroids appear close to the outside of the uterus-partly in the myometrium and partly outside.
Pedunculated fibroids: When submucosal or subserosal fibroids develop a slender base that supports the tumor, they are called pedunculated fibroids.
Uterine fibroids can result in developing two different types of uterine conditions which can be catheterized under as:
A. Cancerous uterine conditions B. Non Cancerous uterine conditions
Most of the growths in the uterus are typically non-cancerous in origin. Some of the most common non-cancerous conditions are:
Endometriosis and endometrial hyperplasia
Severe menstrual pain and ovarian cysts
Pelvic inflammatory disease
When is Fibroid Treatment required ?
Treatment of fibroids depends on the age of the patient, her medical condition and obstetric history, size and type of fibroid. The common criteria associated with selection of treatment also depend on the symptoms like:
Excess and prolonged menstrual bleeding
Pain in the abdomen and lower back
Frequent urination or constipation
Fibroids Treatment Options
Treatment for Fibroids can be classified in two ways:
Medical Management: GnRH agonists, Progestin, oral contraceptive pills, androgenic agents and anti-estrogens.
Myomectomy: This procedure is for removal of fibroids but conserves the uterus. There are different techniques of performing myomectomy like Hysteroscopic, laparoscopic and open myomectomy.
Uterine Artery Embolization/Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UAE/UFE): The blood flow to the uterus and/or fibroid is blocked, leading to necrosis and a gradual shrinkage of the fibroid.
Hysterectomy: It is one of the options which involves complete or partial removal of the uterus and the fibroid. It can be done the conventional way or minimally invasive way.
How is Fibroid Treatment done?
Laparoscopic myomectomy removes intramural tumors viz., tumors that are deep inside the uterus wall or subserosal which lie outside the uterus. A very small incision gives access to the laparoscope and surgical tools making it a minimally invasive procedure.
Hysteroscopic myomectomy technique removes fibroids that are submucosal with the help of a small camera called a hysteroscope to pass through the cervix into the uterus in order to excise and remove the fibroids.
Open myomectomy is the traditional method with incision large enough to remove the fibroids. This technique is used when other less invasive methods are not an option.
Laparoscopic Hysterectomy: The patient is anesthetized. Small incisions of about a centimeter are made on the lower abdomen. The abdomen is then filled with carbon dioxide and a small camera with laparoscope and small instruments are introduced and operated. The gas is later removed and incisions are closed.
Vaginal Hysterectomy: The procedure is performed through the vagina. Both vaginal and Laparoscopic hysterectomy are for situations where the uterus is not too large in size.
Abdominal Hysterectomy: This is the traditional horizontal incisions to remove the uterus and fibroids when it is too large for minimally invasive methods.
Uterine Artery Embolization (UAE): The procedure is done by an interventional radiologist. The patient is sedated and a needle is inserted into the leg and a catheter is connected to the artery and x-ray is taken. Particles of polyvinyl alcohol are injected that block the arterial supply for the fibroid. Thus, the uterine arteries are embolized and the blood supply to the fibroids is cut off, so that the fibroids shrink and disintegrate. The patient has to remain in bed for 6 hours with the leg straight. Pain can be managed with medicines after the procedure.
What is the Recovery after Fibroid Treatment like?
Recovery time for laparoscopic and all minimally invasive procedures require an overnight stay in the hospital. Uterine Artery Embolization procedure involves overnight stay at the hospital but total recovery will happen in 7 to 10 days. Vaginal hysterectomy usually takes 24 hours to stay at the hospital. Mild pain persists for approximately 10 days. Whereas with abdominal hysterectomy, it takes 3 to 4 days of hospital stay and total recovery needs 4- 6 weeks.
What Results Can I Expect from Fibroid Treatment?
85% to 90% of the patients have significant resolution of symptoms such as pain, heavy bleeding etc. Hysterectomy is a permanent treatment where the uterus is taken out and there are no chances of having fibroids after that. The flip side is that the woman cannot get pregnant after hysterectomy. Myomectomy has good results with resolution of all symptoms. Chances of recurrence of fibroids have to be consulted with the doctor.

At the age of 49, my fibroids were giving me huge trouble. I had consulted a few local gynecologists but was not very happy and satisfied. One of my friends who had been to India suggested IndiCure and their responses amazed me. They answered all my queries to my satisfaction. I traveled to India for my surgery and had a successful surgery.
Very happy with the services and outcome. Thank you very much Indicure.
I appreciate the professionalism, attention to detail and care that I received from Dr Wagh, Dr Ruchika and Shweta at IndiCure. I am very pleased with the treatments and would certainly recommend them to anyone thinking about traveling abroad for medical reasons.

Procedure: Uterine artery embolization, Abdominoplasty, Breast reduction and Lift
I had been having extremely heavy periods for more than 6 months. I consulted a few gynecologists who suggested I may need to remove the uterus, which I was very skeptical about. My husband had heard a lot about Indian surgeons and thought about consulting them. We searched on the Internet and came across IndiCure. They sent us the opinion of 4 gynecologists and all seemed very promising. We came to India, got a few tests done and finally got rid of my fibroids through a Fibroid Treatment surgery. Extremely thankful to IndiCure for the excellent treatment and facilities.

Thank you Ruchika.

Frequently Asked Questions
Fibroids are very common, and the majority of them do not require treatment.
Women with fibroids have a variety of treatment choices. After examining the following variables, your healthcare provider will recommend the technique that will work best for you:
Your signs and symptoms
Fibroid size, position, and number are all factors to consider
Your personal preferences (desire to become pregnant in the future or maintain your uterus for any other reason)
Few of the treatment options your doctor may offer you are as follows:
Uterine Artery Embolization
Your doctor may detect fibroids during a pelvic examination. Certain signs and symptoms point to the presence of fibroids. Heavy and painful periods, bleeding between periods, pain during intercourse, stomach cramps, and low back pain are all examples of these symptoms.
To get a better look at the fibroids, an MRI or hysteroscopy technique (seeing into the uterus through the vaginal opening) may be used. An ultrasound can detect fibroids in general, especially if the fibroid is small.
Fibroids are benign tumor growths that are not malignant in the majority of cases. Fibroids are, however, unlikely to become malignant. Also, having fibroids does not mean that there are high chances of uterine cancer, it is a myth.
Approximately 80% of women will have at least one fibroid at some point in their lives, and any woman can get uterine fibroids. Women who have a family history of fibroid are at a higher risk. As a result, African-American women face a larger risk than other women. Obesity or excess weight, as well as diet (women who eat more red meat), are additional risk factors for fibroids development. Fibroids are most commonly diagnosed in women between the ages of 40 and 50. Fibroids are less likely to occur after menopause.
Pregnancy will be more challenging due to the fibroids. Fibroids, on the other hand, do not cause infertility. Even with fibroids, most women can conceive and deliver normally. Fibroids may cause problems during pregnancy or labor. It's possible that you'll need a C-section or that you'll have to deliver your baby early. It is recommended that you see a doctor about your condition.
Hysterectomy is the surgical removal of the uterus and is thought to be the only way to ensure that fibroids do not recur. Fibroids are the most common reason for hysterectomy in women. Despite this, many women are apprehensive about undergoing this operation because it fully eliminates their chances of becoming pregnant. Hormone therapy and birth control tablets may help to alleviate the symptoms. Furthermore, there are a number of modern surgical treatments that solely target the fibroids while leaving the uterus intact. The doctor will offer the appropriate treatment option based on your age, your desire to get pregnant, the size and location of the fibroid and your overall medical condition.
Uterus removal cost in India starts from US $ 3200 and varies depending on your medical condition, type of surgery technique used, your surgeon, facility and the city where the surgery is done.
The procedure can be consented to by any woman of legal age, but it must be medically warranted. A doctor is unlikely to conduct a hysterectomy on a woman between the ages of 18 and 35 unless it is really necessary for her health and no other treatments are available.

Thank you IniCure Health Team for all the support you provided my father. You deserve 6 stars for customer service. Your team was instrumental in selling up my Dad with Dr. Babu and other healthcare team. Your Professionalism is exceptional. You responded to my all concerns within 24 hours; you reassured me everything would be okay when I needed it the most; you showed compassion that I have never seen before. Dr. Babu successfully operated my Dad and we are so grateful for that.
Dr. Ruchika in India delivered efficient and professional service from the outset, matching up my weight and health concerns with the most amazing surgeon at the Apollo Spectra hospital in New Delhi, who made good all the promises that had been made, and MORE. All arrangements were executed seamlessly. Very glad I found them and will certainly be using them again, should the need arise.

The IndiCure folks (Jagruti) hooked me up with THE BEST doctors for my heart issues. Period. The Physicians were thorough, professional, fast, proficient and affordable. Dealing with Indicure was super easy, super fast and a very pleasant experience. I HIGHLY recommend this process for those with no insurance or those who cannot afford the 20% co-pay for expensive procedures. Check the cost against prices in the USA folks.
