Factors that affect Myomectomy Cost in India
An important expense when it comes to your Myomectomy is going to be your gynecologist's fees. IndiCure recommends experienced, skilled, board-certified surgeons who are capable of delivering successful surgeries. The charges may vary depending on the experience of the surgeon, popularity, and the approach to treatment.
Technique of Surgery
There are different techniques to perform myomectomy, viz Abdominal, Hysteroscopic or Laparoscopic. Depending on your age, medical condition and other considerations, your doctor may advise the best option for you, which affects the myomectomy cost in India to a great extent.
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 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 Myomectomy 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.
The surgery-related expenses include the pre- and post-surgical expenses. The pre-surgical expenses are associated with the candidacy and the medical history of the patient. This also includes the routine medical exams and tests to ensure you're a good fit for the surgery. Post-surgical expenses may include prescription medications and follow-up consultations.
We at IndiCure, understand that you travel with a budget in mind and do not like to be greeted by surprises after arrival in India. We thus club all these expenses and give you the package cost that is inclusive and affordable at the same time.
Your case manager shall give you an estimated cost of your surgery after discussing your medical reports with the surgeon. The final cost, however, shall be confirmed after your consultation with the surgeon.

What is Myomectomy?
The surgical excision of uterine fibroids is known as myomectomy, or fibroidectomy. Fibroids are benign, noncancerous growths that frequently, but not always, occur during reproductive years. The size, location, and number of fibroids present determine the severity of the symptoms.
Smaller uterine fibroids may cause no symptoms in some patients. When fibroids grow in size, number, or are positioned in specific parts of the uterus, they can produce a variety of debilitating symptoms, including:
Lower back pain
Heavy Menstrual flow
A sensation of pressure in the pelvic area
Myomectomy is the best option for removing fibroids in women who want to keep the chance of becoming pregnant in the future or who want to keep their uterus for other reasons.
When is Myomectomy required ?
If you have fibroids that are bothering you or interfering with your daily activities, your doctor may consider a myomectomy.
If you need surgery for uterine fibroids, there are several reasons to opt for a myomectomy rather than a hysterectomy:
You want to start a family
Uterine fibroids may be interfering with your fertility
Your uterus is something you want to retain
How is Myomectomy done?
There are three main ways to remove fibroid tumors surgically. The best option for you is determined by the location of the fibroids, the number of fibroids present, and the size of the fibroids. The following are the many types of myomectomy surgeries:
If you have several or extremely big fibroids growing in your uterine wall, an abdominal myomectomy may be the best option for you. During the surgery, you will be put under general anesthetic and will be sleeping. To reach the uterus and remove the fibroids, the surgeon will create a three- to four-inch long incision in the lower abdomen. Depending on the size and location of the fibroids, longer incisions may be required. After that, the uterus and skin are sewn shut. Following an abdominal myomectomy, most patients spend two to three days in the hospital.
If you have smaller and fewer fibroids, a laparoscopic myomectomy may be a better option. You will be put under general anesthesia for this treatment. At the belly button, bikini line, and around each hip, four small incisions of about 12″ each are made. The abdominal cavity is subsequently expanded with carbon dioxide gas, and a laparoscopy, or illuminated microscope, is introduced. The microscope allows the surgeons to examine the uterus and other reproductive organs as well as manipulate the equipment used to remove the fibroids from the other incisions. In many situations, this treatment is carried out with the assistance of a robotic arm that is controlled by a computer by the surgeon. Patients usually stay at the hospital for one day before returning home.
This procedure is used to remove fibroids that have protruded considerably into the uterine cavity (submucosal fibroids). External incisions are not required for hysteroscopic myomectomy. During the procedure, you may be given either local or general anesthetic. You’ll lie down on your back with your feet in gynecological stirrups once the surgery begins. A tiny telescope is placed into the uterus through the cervix. The fluid will be introduced to separate the uterine walls, and the fibroids will be “shaved” off with a wire loop by the surgeon. This procedure is done as an outpatient procedure. You will be admitted to the hospital for observation for a few hours before being discharged the same day.
What is the Recovery after Myomectomy like?
The amount of time it takes to recuperate from a myomectomy operation is determined by the type of myomectomy performed. The following are the average healing times:
Abdominal Myomectomy– Most patients stay in the hospital for two to three days after having an abdominal myomectomy. There is an additional five-week rehabilitation period after being released.
Laparoscopic Myomectomy – This surgery usually only requires the patient to stay in the hospital for one night. It will take another three weeks to recover at home.
Hysteroscopic Myomectomy - This is an outpatient treatment. Most patients are able to return home the same day and only require a few days of rest to fully recover.
Following any type of myomectomy, you may have some discomfort. Until the incision is completely healed, heavy weight lifting should be avoided. To alleviate the discomfort, your doctor may prescribe medication. Following the operation, patients may endure spotting for days or even weeks.
Consult your doctor to establish when it is safe to resume sexual activity, as well as when it is safe to resume attempting to conceive.
What Results Can I Expect from Myomectomy?
Myomectomy may result in the following outcomes:
Reduced Symptoms– Most women enjoy alleviation from troublesome signs and symptoms after myomectomy surgery, such as heavy menstrual bleeding and pelvic pain and pressure.
Improved Fertility– Within a year following surgery, women who receive a laparoscopic myomectomy with or without robotic assistance had an excellent pregnancy outcome. To give your uterus time to heal after a myomectomy, you should wait three to six months before trying to conceive.

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.

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 myomectomy surgery. Extremely thankful to IndiCure for the excellent treatment and facilities.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions
The treatment to remove fibroids (non cancerous tumors) from the uterus is known as a myomectomy. Any surgery that necessitates an overnight or extended stay in the hospital, requires anesthesia, and involves the removal or alteration of a body part is classified as major surgery. As a result, myomectomy is a major surgery.
Medical literature says given the natural progression of myoma beyond menopause, myomectomy is a viable choice for women aged 40 and up who choose to keep their uterus.
The length of time spent in the hospital is determined by the type of surgery and the patient's health. You can go home the same day if your surgery is done through the vaginal canal, with a laparoscope, or with robotic-assisted technology. If a big surgical cut or incision is made in the belly, you may need to stay in the hospital for 2 to 3 days under medical supervision.
It's uncommon, but you can have an infection following a myomectomy. Antibiotics will be administered to you if this happens. After a myomectomy, it is typical to experience a fever, but this is usually due to tissue changes rather than infection.
A transfusion may be required if substantial bleeding occurs during a myomectomy, regardless of the type of operation. This is, once again, unusual. To avoid a transfusion, it is best to treat any anemia you may have before surgery.
Only the fibroids are removed during a myomectomy, leaving the uterus intact. This operation will allow you to have more children in the future. Periods will resume, hopefully lighter than they were prior to the removal of the fibroids. The procedure itself takes longer than a hysterectomy, and a myomectomy results in higher blood loss.
Women who have finished having children and do not wish to have periods in the future frequently opt for hysterectomy. Whether the cervix or the ovaries be removed as part of the hysterectomy procedure is one of the options. Hysterectomy can be done vaginally, abdominally, or laparoscopically (a less invasive method that uses small incisions).
After a myomectomy, new fibroids may form. Women who are younger and have a lot of fibroids are more likely to have more fibroids than women who are near menopause and have a few fibroids.
Laparoscopy and robotic techniques are minimally invasive procedures that have numerous advantages over laparotomy. Complications are less common in women who have a laparoscopic or robotic myomectomy. They also have less blood loss, shorter hospital stays, faster recovery, and a lower chance of adhesion formation after surgery.
Improvement in symptoms and fertility concerns are expected as a result of myomectomy. After the procedure, most women have relief from pelvic pain and heavy menstrual bleeding. A successful pregnancy has been reported in around half of the women who have had a myomectomy, especially following a laparoscopic treatment.
It is recommended that you wait three to six months before attempting to conceive. This period is needed for the uterus to recover after the procedure.

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.
