Fibroid removal, or fibroid surgery, refers to a number of surgical procedures to remove uterine fibroids (tumors) from the wall of the uterus. Uterine fibroids are usually noncancerous.
If you are experiencing symptoms of uterine fibroids, such as pelvic pain, heavy bleeding during menstruation, painful intercourse, frequent urination, and bloating, consult an experienced Dignity Health gynecologist. We offer compassionate care to evaluate fibroid symptoms and perform fibroid removal in Sacramento, CA and the surrounding areas. Find a Doctor for the services you need.
Uterine fibroids can be very uncomfortable or painful. At Dignity Health, skilled gynecologic surgeons can provide relief from these symptoms by removing the fibroids altogether.

We use the latest technologies for these surgeries, including the da Vinci System, often resulting in shorter recovery times. Be sure to discuss all of the risks and benefits of each treatment option with your doctor, who will help you find the right solution for your unique case.
The amount of time needed for recovery from fibroid removal will depend on the type of procedure you have. In most cases, you’ll need a few weeks to fully recover. For a hysterectomy, recovery time can take three to six weeks.
