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.
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:
Treatment for Fibroids can be classified in two ways:
GnRH agonists, Progestin, oral contraceptive pills, androgenic agents and anti-estrogens.
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.
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.
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.
We at IndiCure completely understand your concerns and it is always our endeavor to provide the best outcome for every patient. Following is the list of questions you must ask before you embark on your journey for Fibroid Treatment in India.

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.
Procedure: Fibroid Treatment
Very Happy with the professionalism IndiCure people showed on my visit to India for my treatment. I felt welcomed, they made me feel at ease, answered all my queries and were there to help me all through the way. I am so happy that I chose IndiCure for my medical treatment abroad.
Thank you Ruchika.
Procedure: Gynecology Treatment
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:
Few of the treatment options your doctor may offer you are as follows:
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.

I recently traveled to Mumbai for a lower body lift and breast lift. As an American nurse living in Saudi Arabia I was apprehensive at first and did months of research. I chose IndiCure because of Dr. Jagannathan. I traveled alone and spent almost 3 weeks there undergoing 2 separate procedures. I was pleasantly surprised. The surgeries both went flawless. All of the hospital staff was amazing. Read Michelle Williams's Review About IndiCure Here
