Uterine Fibroid Removal


Uterine Fibroids are non-cancerous growths that develop on the smooth muscular tissue of the uterus and can affect up to 70% of women in their lifetime.

They can cause painful symptoms such as heavy menstrual bleeding, pelvic pain and pressure, urinary problems and an enlarged abdomen, leading to a decline in quality of life. Uterine fibroid removal tackles these unwanted growths with the promise of relief and improved quality of life.

Dr. Supriya Puranik is a leading infertility specialist and IVF expert in Pune with years of experience treating uterine fibroids. Her expertise and experience have helped women overcome uterine fibroids and improve their quality of life.

Dr. Supriya Puranik is known for using advanced medical technologies that minimize side effects and maximize the chances of preserving fertility.

Types of Procedures Offered

There are different types of procedures for uterine fibroid removal, including laparoscopy, hysteroscopy, and myomectomy. Before treatment,

Dr. Supriya Puranik examines each patient’s fibroids and determines the most suitable surgical procedures based on the location, size, and number of the fibroids in the uterus.

  • Laparoscopy is a minimally invasive procedure that involves making small incisions in the abdomen. A tiny camera and surgical instruments are inserted through these incisions to remove the uterine fibroids.
    This procedure is less invasive than open surgery, resulting in less pain, scarring, and a faster recovery time than traditional methods like abdominal myomectomy or hysterectomy surgeries, which have longer recovery periods associated with them and greater potential for post-operative complications.
  • Hysteroscopy involves inserting a thin, lighted telescope-like instrument through the vagina and cervix to examine the uterine cavity for fibroids. If any fibroids are found, they are removed using specialized surgical instruments such as scissors or electrosurgery devices through hysteroscopic guided surgery (HGS). 

HGS is very effective for smaller-sized lesions with low morbidity rates for patients undergoing this type of treatment regimen when performed by an experienced gynecologist/surgeon like Dr. Supriya Puranik, who has expertise in this field.

  • Myomectomy is a surgical procedure to remove uterine fibroids from the uterus while preserving fertility if desired by preserving both ovaries intact as much as possible during surgery. Dr. Supriya Puranik typically employs an advanced surgical technique called Laparoscopic Myomectomy, which involves making a few small incisions in the abdomen, through which surgical instruments are inserted to remove vaginal, intraabdominal or subserosal myomas (fibroids). 

Laparoscopic myomectomy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that can effectively reduce the symptoms of large submucosal lesions associated with uterine fibroid tumors. It offers superior aesthetic results as it can target specific areas within the reproductive system affected by aberrant cell growth.

Compared to traditional excision surgeries, laparoscopic myomectomy leaves fewer open wounds and requires less assistance from plastic surgeons for cosmetic reconstruction post-surgery.

Our Approach to Treatment

At Dr. Supriya Puranik’s clinic, her medical team provides personalized treatment to each patient. We conduct a thorough examination before any procedure to evaluate factors such as age and size of lesions, number of lesions, location, and whether an ovarian-sparing approach may be necessary to preserve fertility. 

Our state-of-the-art facility ensures the best possible outcomes through minimally invasive procedures while considering any pre-existing health condition. Advanced laparoscopic methodologies are employed for maximum accuracy and minimum trauma when targeting abnormal tissues.

Success Rate

Dr. Supriya Puranik’s experience and use of advanced medical technologies guarantee a high success rate for uterine fibroid removal. Laparoscopic myomectomy has an up to 90% success rate in relieving pain and improving fertility, while hysteroscopic guided surgery is very effective for smaller-sized lesions with low morbidity rates. Both procedures require experienced gynecologists/surgeons who are experts in these fields.

Cost of Treatment

The cost of uterine fibroid removal varies based on factors such as the type of surgery, the size and number of fibroids, insurance coverage, and medication. Our medical team provides complete information on the costs and financing options available so patients can make informed decisions.


  1.  Can uterine fibroids come back after surgery? 
    • Some women can experience recurrence; however, this is rare as long as recommended follow-up care is followed after a successful procedure.
  2. How soon can I return to daily activities following surgery?
    • Depending on the type of procedure performed, most patients can resume light activities two or three days post operation with full recovery from all symptoms usually occurring within 4-6 weeks, depending upon any post-operative complications requiring additional management measures.
  3. Will uterine fibroid removal affect my ability to conceive? 
    • Fibroid removal may improve a woman’s chances at conception in some cases. Still, it is important to consult with your doctor before considering any treatment option that could potentially risk one’s fertility due to its unpredictable nature in many cases. Though most treatments proposed by Dr. .Supriya Puranik prioritize preservation whenever feasible once postoperatively confirmed using static parameters.
