biolitec® in Gynecology

Minimally invasive laser therapy of myomas

Combating myomas with laser medicine

biolitec® presented its new laser method for the conservative removal of myomas to a symposium in Rome in October 2012 and it was met with great approval. Until then, myomas had usually been removed using surgical or radiological procedures. The HOLA® laser procedure removes myomas in a minimally invasive manner and with few side effects.
