Dr. William H. Parker of http://www.fibroidsecondopinion.com/ removes 18 fibroids from the uterus of a 49 year old patient during this open surgery. The size of these uterine fibroids made the uterus the equivalent size of a 20-week pregnancy. Because the patient wished to preserve her uterus, the operation performed was myomectomy was performed instead of a hysterectomy. The surgery was performed successfully through a bikini incision. The video has been edited to 5 minutes and shows two fibroids being removed, suture closure of the uterine muscle and the use of Seprafilm adhesion barriers. NOTE: This video is very graphic.
