Fibroid removal from the uterus, with preservation of the uterus for fertility, is known as “myomectomy” – one of the most difficult procedures to complete successfully in benign gynecology. The CIGC approach to myomectomy – LAAM-BUAL – is unique, and has been very successful for the removal of fibroids of all sizes and number in thousands of patients. LAAM is Laparoscopic Assisted Abdominal Myomectomy, while BUAL refers to Bilateral Uterine Artery Ligation, which is the permanent or temporary blockage of the uterine artery during the procedure to control bleeding. CIGC NEVER uses electronic morcellation techniques with any of its procedures.
