An Overview:

Uterine fibroids are non-cancerous tumors, present in woman’s childbearing age. These fibroids are made of cells, tissue, and muscles that remain attached to the uterine wall.

Depending on their location, they are classified as:

Fibroid Treatment in Dubai

Typically, fibroids are present in 80% of women of childbearing age. Not in all cases, but fibroids can cause fertility issues, pregnancy obstacles, and even delivery issues due to their size, number, and location.

These fibroids can be subsided or completely removed through various treatments. Interestingly, most women do not know they have fibroids because they are asymptomatic. However, some women also get excruciating pain, cramping, and other fibroid-related symptoms.

Fibroid Diagnosis

Most uterine fibroids are diagnosed accidentally during a routine pelvic examination. During the pelvic examination, the irregular size or shape of the uterus can hint at fibroids’ presence. To further confirm, Dr. Mustafa recommends ultrasound, X-ray, or MRI to visualize the fibroids. 

Fibroid Treatments in Dubai

The uterine fibroids management depends on the complications caused due to them. If the fibroids are very small, with minimal risk of growth, Dr. Mustafa is an expert in fibroid treatment in Dubai and recommends medications to subside them. However, if there are several fibroids or large fibroids, the doctor may ask for fibroid removal surgery to permanently remove them. Surgery is considered the best modality of treatment. The common fibroids removal surgery include:

  • Cryosurgery– It is MR-guided transvaginal cryotherapy. A lighted probe or endoscope is inserted transvaginally, and then fibroids are deflated by cryotherapy, i.e., through laser or freezing probes, the fibroids are shrunken and deactivated to a minimal size.
  • Uterine Artery Embolisation (UAE) – It is a minimally invasive and very safe fibroid treatment. In this, the doctor injects small sand-like particulates in the blood-supplying artery into the fibroid. The injection cuts the blood supply to fibroids, and they choke and die without a blood supply.
  • Laparoscopic Hysterectomy – It involves partial or complete removal of the uterus. Typically, it is suggested when the female partner has no more pregnancy plans or the fibroids are life-threatening, causing excruciating pain, debility, or other complications alongside.

Dr. Mustafa may indicate non-surgical treatments such as steroidial medications to stabilize the estrogen levels in the body and shrink the fibroids if they aren’t a future threat. Medication is a very common fibroid treatment in Dubai.

Laparoscopic Myomectomy Dubai

Laparoscopic myomectomy is a revolutionary and minimally invasive approach to treating uterine fibroids using a laparoscope. A laparoscope is a thin tube equipped with a camera that allows surgeons to visualize the internal structures and navigate with precision. This minimally invasive alternative is highly efficient compared to traditional open surgery.

What does it involve?

This laparoscopic procedure involves the removal of fibroids from the uterus through small incisions, employing a laparoscope and specialized instruments.

During laparoscopic myomectomy, surgeons carefully excise fibroids or uterine tumors, aiming to alleviate symptoms such as heavy menstrual bleeding, pelvic pain, and reproductive issues. The smaller incisions contribute to less scarring and a lower risk of postoperative complications. Additionally, patients often experience less pain and a quicker return to daily activities.

One of the primary advantages of laparoscopic myomectomy is its minimal impact on surrounding tissues, resulting in reduced blood loss, shorter hospital stays, and faster recovery times compared to open surgery. It may be recommended for individuals with

• Severe pelvic pain
• Abnormally large fibroids
• Severe irregular and/or heavy menstrual bleeding
• Infertility caused by uterine fibroids


This technique is particularly beneficial for women seeking fertility preservation, as it enables the removal of fibroids while preserving the integrity of the uterus.

As an advanced and patient-friendly fibroid treatment option, laparoscopic myomectomy showcases the intersection of medical innovation and improved patient outcomes in gynecological care. This procedure empowers women with a less invasive, more efficient solution for addressing the challenges posed by uterine fibroids, ultimately enhancing their overall quality of life.

Although a very safe and advanced procedure, it is only performed by highly skilled surgeons who understand the nuance of surgery. Consult one of the best laparoscopic surgeons, Dr. Mustafa Aldam, for myomectomy surgery in Dubai.

Risk due to fibroids in Pregnancy

Uterine fibroids occupy both space and nutrition and may stunt fetal growth and pose a miscarriage risk. Fibroids also increase the risk of bleeding, placental abruption, or labor issues in pregnancy. Also, a small fibroid may grow big due to increased hormonal stimulation in pregnancy. Hence it is recommended to seek fibroid treatment first before conceiving.

You can consult Dr. Mustafa Aldam, a board-certified obstetrician and gynecologist in Dubai with immense 20+ years of experience. He is also one of the best doctors for fibroid treatment in Dubai. Fibroids though common, obstruct fertility and increase the risks in pregnancy. Seek the aptest fibroid treatment only from the best, Dr. Mustafa Aldam.
