Uterine Fibroids

These are non-cancerous growths from the wall or muscle of the womb (myometrium). Their presence is believed to be genetic in origin with certain races having an increased risk of their growth. There is also a known associated familial pattern. If large, fibroids do not only cause heavy bleeding but might also cause pain and infertility if they block the fallopian tubes or press on the lining of the womb. There are 3 types of fibroids; subserous on the outside of the uterus, intramural in the main body of the uterus (myometrium) and subserosal in the lining of the uterus.

Fibroids can be managed through the use of medical hormonal and non-hormonal treatments, the insertion of coils (such as the Mirena IUS), Endometrial ablation techniques, Embolisation techniques such as Uterine artery embolisation (UAE) or surgery. Surgical options include hysteroscopic resection of the submucous fibroid from the lining of the uterus. For larger fibroids and those located within the muscle of the uterus then myomectomy can be performed through keyhole Laparoscopic surgery or open surgery. Mr Davis is an expert in the management of all times of fibroids and performs complex laparoscopic, hysteroscopic and open surgery on a regular basis both privately and within the NHS.
