Dr. Banooni recently saw a 28 year old patient with a large fibroid that was attached to the uterus separately which obviously was causing tremendous pain. In this video, Dr. Banooni discusses how he determines various different removal techniques in these cases. One method is a morcellation which is an incision that removes the fibroid piece by piece. This procedure is banned by many hospitals due to the increased risk of a potential cancerous tumor being excacerbated. Another option is a laparoscopy or an open abdominal procedure. Dr. Banooni believe morcellators are good options in young patients, while the other methods could work in older patients.
